Colchester in New London county, Connecticut

Colchester, CT

Colchester is a convenient and pleasant place to live because of its central location and rural setting. The housing around town ranges from gracious older residences to beautiful new homes.

The first settlers arrived in the area in 1695. The town was founded in 1698 and the official adoption of the name Colchester occurred in 1699.

Soon after the first Hartford-New London turnpike was opened in 1800 the town of Colchester became a nucleus of local throughways. The roads led to an influx of industry including manufacturers of paper and textiles.

Cultural activities, shopping, entertainment as well as Foxwoods and the Mohegan Sun casinos are only a short drive away.
