Colchester, CT History
Located just east of North Westchester and South of the Chanticlair Public Golf Course, Colchester was purchased from the Nohegan Native American Tribe and founded in 1698. Colchester was the vision of a group of early English settlers who sought to lay out a new life in the vast wilderness of Connecticut. By 1756, Colchester was one of the most thriving rural towns in the Colony, with a fast growing population able to support itself through various trade skills and farming.
Colchester continues its prosperous start with its planned communities, excellent highway systems, managed and planned park activities, and great social gathering hot spots for singles and families. Colchester is the best of both worlds, being a short drive to Hartford, Middletown and the Norwich/New London areas, while still having the family oriented small town atmosphere.
