I don't know whether anyone in Connecticut ever refers to the area this way in conversation, though there is a business in Seymour called the All-American Valley General Store. And there's a proud sign on Route 8, which I see every time I drive past and then forget a second later.
But I was thinking about the designation as I walked around Ansonia the other day. The town really did look perfectly All-American, all of a sudden, or perhaps it always has.
