Welcome Message
from
First Selectman Edward Haberek, Jr.

It is my pleasure as Stonington's First Selectman, to welcome you to our Town of Stonington website.

The Town of Stonington shares an eclectic heritage with its 18,000 plus residents. Within the 42.7 square miles of the community you find a modern day blend of history, technology, and recreation. Toss in a major economic engine called tourism, place it against a scenic backdrop of sunlit, coastal waters, with plentiful wildlife, and then, surround it with similarly striving communities and businesses. Day to day, Stonington is an ideal place to have a business, build a home and make a life of it.

Stonington was incorporated when the earliest settlers to the area arrived from the Plymouth colony in 1649. Originally a trading post on the Pawcatuck River, Stonington was later claimed by Massachusetts and named Southertown. Connecticut Governor John Winthrop, Jr. obtained the charter for the Colony of Connecticut in 1662 from England which set the boundaries to include the town, and the General Court first changed the name to Mystic in 1665. In 1666, the name was changed to Stonington.

Our culture in Stonington includes a unique sophisticated appeal with a small town New England charm. Stonington comprises a number of villages including Pawcatuck, Stonington Borough, Lords Point, Wequetequock and the eastern halves of Mystic and Old Mystic. We are properly situated between the metropolitan cities of New York City and Boston. Conveniently, our town is right off Interstate 95 which provides easy access for travelers, residents and our businesses. Stonington is an extraordinary town that thrives on innovative industry, preservation of our scenic beauty and embracing our historical heritage.

Please take time to look over our website and visit our town which features tree lined village streets with quaint shops and excellent restaurants. Stonington is an exciting place to be and we hope you visit to get a sense of how proud we are of it.
 
Sincerely,
Ed
Edward Haberek Jr.
