A friend (who lives nowhere near here) recently pointed out that he'd never encountered the word "ramparage" before. I did a Google search and discovered that "ramparage" apparently exists only in Waterbury (excluding website with typos).
Our use of the word might have started in the late 1960s, when the Buckingham Ramparage was built (a multi-level parking garage with ramps connecting the different levels). By 1979 there was a city position of Parking Ramparage Supervisor (that's the earliest online reference).
Anyone out there know anything more about the origins of this word?
