Barber has gathered a wide range of information on each county and town of Connecticut as of 1836, arranging the entries by county, followed by an account of the leading settlement in each county, and then the remaining towns in that county in alphabetical order, with many illustrations included.   

For the older and larger towns especially, the compiler has embellished the historical account of the town with extracts from the town records and, in later years, lengthy passages from the leading newspapers. Also for the earlier towns, Barber has included lists of the earliest proprietors.

The compiler has incorporated into the accounts of many of the towns biographical sketches of leading inhabitants, and, unusually for this sort of compilation, he has also included many substantial inscriptions from tombstones and other monuments.
