About Thompson

Reprinted from the Northeast Connecticut Guide, 2006
Much of the long, prosperous history of Thompson is related to the rivers that cross the borders, the mills that grew along their banks, and the railroads that served the industrial complex. Today the Providence and Worcester Railroad travels through the town carrying freight to the deepwater port of New London. The town's geographical placement at a locus point between Hartford, Boston, Providence, and New York has historically given the advantage of being centralized, but uncomplicated by urban problems.

"Quality of Life" is the reason people live here: one has only to sample the life style of this community and the surrounding countryside to realize something special. Quaddick Lake offers swimming, boating and fishing with the latter two also being available at the West Thompson Dam Recreational Site maintianed by the Army Corps of Engineers. The picturesque Common is also the site of Thompson's original Town Hall, maintained by the local historical society, whose collection recounts the community's ethnic, agricultural and manufacturing past.

The Ten Villages

Reprinted from the Northeast Connecticut Guide, 2006
Although Thompson is one of the largest geographical areas in norhteastern Connecticut, it has no one single center of identity.
Instead, most of its residents identify themselves with the "village" that is closest to them. The villages are:
East Thompson, Fabyan, Grosvenordale, Mechanicsville, North Grosvenordale, Quaddick, Quinebaug, Thompson Hill, West Thompson, Wilsonville.
