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.

The educational climate index chart is based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s Socioeconomic Status (SES) measure. Factors in this measure are income, educational achievement and occupation of persons within a ZIP code. Because this measure is based on the population of an entire ZIP code, it may not reflect the nature of an individual school.
The temperature chart displays average high and low temperatures (degrees Fahrenheit) for the months of January and July.
