The area of Stafford/Stafford Springs, Connecticut, has a long, rich history pre-dating Stafford’s incorporation in 1719. For years prior, Native Americans and European settlers were drawn to the famous mineral springs’ curative properties. When Stafford was incorporated, most of its residents were concentrated in a half dozen agricultural villages. However, when the availability of water power from Willimantic River tributaries became available in the early 1800s, there were population shifts resulting from Stafford’s industrialization. Then, in the mid-1800s, Stafford was connected to numerous New England markets by the Railroad, and in the 1920s and 1930s, state highway projects were underway, which further transformed the community.
