History

Founded as an English settlement by John Winthrop Junior in 1646, and officially named 12 years later, the town of New London did not stand long until it was nearly burned to the ground during the Battle of Groton Heights by Norwich native Benedict Arnold.

New London houses a healthy collection of museums including the Lyman Allyn Art Museum and New London Maritime Society Custom House Museum, which features a thorough and in-depth look into the nautical history of the New London area. Meanwhile, the Slater Memorial Museum of Norwich presents a respectable assortment of fine art representing a diverse range of world cultures.
