Colchester’s early history, like that of many towns in New England, centered on the church parish. In 1703, the General Court of the Colony of Connecticut ruled that the settlement could organize a church body here known as Colchester. Within a few years, several grist mills and saw mills were built to provide grain and lumber for the settlement. Today, it remains a rural escape for commuters from Hartford and New Haven, about equidistance from both.
