The City of Norwich
Norwich, known as "The Rose of New England," is a city in southeastern Connecticut with a population of slightly over 40,000 (per the 2010 United States Census.) The Yantic, the Shetucket, and the Quinebaug Rivers flow into the city and form its beautiful harbor, from which the Thames River flows south to Long Island Sound.
Founded in 1658, Norwich is rich in history and architecture. Throughout its history, Norwich has been home to Native Americans, English Settlers, Sailors and Sea Captains, Merchants, Industrial Barons, and countless immigrants from all over the world who, by settling in Norwich, formed diverse cultural neighborhoods and villages (Norwichtown, Bean Hill, Yantic, Taftville, Greeneville, Occum, East Great Plains, Thamesville, Laurel Hill and the Chelsea District.)
Norwich continues to embrace its diverse cultural and population. It is home to a world-class business park, AA minor league baseball team, top quality educational facilities, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, museums and recreational complexes, and arts and entertainment venues.
