This original plot of land purchased in the year 1640 was known as Mohegan. In 1659 it was incorporated as Norwich, CT. The Corner Bounds of the Square were marked by oak trees (two white oaks and two black oaks.) The trees have been replaced with inscribed granite stones. Visit the display to learn more!
