Canterbury in Windham county, Connecticut

Canterbury, CT

First settled in 1697, charming Canterbury occupies 40 square miles in eastern Connecticut on the Quinebaug river.

Since it was not founded along any significant transportation routes, Canterbury's economy depended mainly on agriculture even through the industrial revolution. Even today, dairy farming remains a key industry. Many beautiful historic homes grace the community.

The first consolidated school in the community was built in 1947. Today, there are two schools to serve the community's children: a K-4 elementary school and 5-8 middle school. High school students commute to neighboring communities to attend school.

Canterbury's active recreation department provides year-round activities for all ages. There are two main routes through town: Route 169, a state scenic highway, and Route 14.

Canterbury was home to what many regard as the first integrated classroom in the United States, and the community hosts the Prudence Crandall Museum in commemoration. Canterbury is also the birthplace of the famous Moses Cleveland, founder of the city of Cleveland, Ohio.
