After the conclusion of the Pequot War in 1638, the Pequots ceased to exist as a tribe; after King Philip’s War ended in 1678, the Narragansett and Nipmuck did as well, leaving the Mohegans the only native power in the region.

The tract was named the town of Windham in May 1692, and was incorporated into Hartford County in fall of 1693.
Starting in the early nineteenth century, the town’s center of activity moved from Windham to Willimantic, as the water power available there led to the establishment of factories.104 First established as a borough in 1833, it was incorporated as a separate city in 1893, then reincorporated into the town of Windham in 1983 as its industry declined.
