Danbury was named after the village of Danbury in Essex, England. It was founded by the colonists in 1685. At that time, the area was known as Pahquioque by the indigenous Pahquioque Indians. The settlers initially called the town Swampfield, but the general court decreed that it be named Danbury in 1687.

During the American Revolutionary War, Danbury acted as a military supply depot for the colonists. This caused the British to burn down the city on 26-27 April, 1777. Due to that incident, when the city was rebuilt, it took the motto of Restituimus, which in Latin means "we have restored".

The expression "Separation of Church and State" was first used by Thomas Jefferson in 1802, in a letter written to the Danbury Baptist Association. The letter is still in existence, and is displayed at the Unitarian-Universalist Congregation of Danbury.
