Torrington

Torrington is the county seat of Goshen County, with a population of around 6000. It is in the Southeastern part of the state at the intersection of US Highways 85 and 26. The city was founded around the 1880s by W.G. Curtis and named by him for his home town of Torrington, CT. When Goshen County was formed in 1911 Torrington and Lingle competed to become the county seat and Torrington won by raising enough money to build the courthouse in 1913.

I came to Torrington on Day 72 of my roadtrip, and was kinda tired so I didn't do much here except eat, sleep and drink two rum and cokes. Seemed like a nice enough town. I need to go back someday.
