Colchester Homes for Sale
Colchester, settled more than three hundred years ago, is a well-established community with a population of more than sixteen thousand people. At one time the community was quite small but the post-war growth of neighboring communities led to Colchester’s expansion and established it as a desirable bedroom community to Middletown, Hartford, and the New London/Norwich areas. Beach traffic brought many people to Colchester in the 1950s, and in the 1960s the completion of the Route 2 by-pass brought more. In the late 1970s, contributing to the town’s growth were its quality of life, acceptance of all people, and dedication to the public school system.
Speaking of schools, young residents of Colchester are served by Colchester Public Schools, a district that dates back to 1803 and the creation of the first Bacon Academy. Today the district oversees the operation of Colchester Elementary School on Halls Hill Road, which serves approximately five hundred students. Jack Jackter Intermediate School is also on Halls Hill Road, serving students in grades third through fifth, while William J. Johnston Middle School is located on Norwich Avenue, not far from Bacon Academy. In addition to esteemed schools, Colchester also encompasses many lovely parks. Colchester Parks include Town Green, Schuster Park, Salmon River State Park, Ruby, and Elizabeth Cohen Woodlands, Recreation Complex, Lions Club Skating Pond, Day Pond State Park, Colchester Dog Park, Colchester Burying Grounds, Chanticlair Golf Course, and Air Line Trail State Park.
