The town of Stonington is located in New London County. The first European colonists established a trading house in the Pawcatuck section of town in 1649. The present territory of Stonington was part of lands that had belonged to the Pequot people, who referred to the areas making up Stonington as Pawcatuck (Stony Brook to the Pawcatuck River) and Mistack (Mystic River to Stony Brook). It was named “Souther Towne” or Southerton by Massachusetts in 1658, and officially became part of Connecticut in 1662 when Connecticut received its royal charter. Southerton was renamed “Mistick” in 1665, and finally named Stonington in 1666, meaning “stony town.” Thomas Miner, Walter Palmer, William Chesebrough, and Thomas Stanton were the founders. The town of North Stonington was set off as a parish from Stonington in 1724 and incorporated as a town in 1807. Stonington first prospered in the 1790s when its harbor was home to a fleet engaged in the profitable seal hunting trade in which seals were hunted on islands off the Chilean and Patagonian coasts, and their skins were sold as fur in China.
It’s no secret that Stonington has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Go on a whaler cruise where you can do brunch and see the whales in the area. Do everything from guided tours to scavenger hunts at the Submarine Force Library and Museum Association. Visit the Avery Copp House. Built circa 1800 on the banks of the Thames River, the house passed from generation to generation of the same family and is a wonderful time capsule of local history. For dinner, we suggest you customize a boro bowl at Noah’s Restaurant. Year round, people flock to Stonington to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Stonington, they can also be a serious problem at homes and businesses. That’s when a professional pest control expert should be called in.
