Griswold, New London, Connecticut, USA
Originally a part of the Pequot, the Mohegan came from the upper Hudson River Valley in New York near Lake Champlain. Sometime around 1500, both tribes left this area and moved to the Thames River Valley in southeastern Connecticut. The Mohegan called their homeland Moheganeak and occupied portions of the Thames Valley, of what was called Pachaug the area that is now Griswold.
