On opposite sides of the Connecticut River, two settlements were founded in the 1600’s after being purchased from Mattabesett Native Americans. As they grew, the settlements thrived as ports, serving the robust brownstone quarry industry and became important commercial centers well into the 20th Century. Portland was originally named East Middletown or Conway, then Chatham. It was incorporated as a town in 1841.
Portland brownstone was used in the row houses in Manhattan and Brooklyn, Hartford’s Old State house, Wesleyan University campus buildings, and monuments and gravestones across the state.
The Daniels Family are Middletown and Portland Connecticut’s premier oil dealer. We began delivering coal to both towns in 1926. As the region grew and home energy demands changed, Daniels changed with the times. Central Connecticut and the Shoreline has been home to four generations of our family. Like our grandparents, we live and work in this vibrant developing area that combines the charm of a settled New England lifestyle and a rich cultural history. As DANIELS ENERGY, we are the area’s home comfort source for oil and propane, as well as heating and air conditioning services.
