Vernon, Connecticut, USA

People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Vernon, Connecticut, USA? 

Vernon, Tolland, Connecticut, USA
Originally a part of the neighboring town of Bolton, colonists first settled here in the 1700's. It was known then as "North Bolton", and was a farming community. As the number of residents reached about 700 persons, they found that attending Sunday church services 12 miles away in the center of Bolton was troublesome during the winter months. They asked for and were given permission to form their own church, and in 1808 they were granted a charter from the State to break away from Bolton and form a new town which they named "Vernon" (most towns in New England were named either after towns in England or were taken from native American names for places)...gis.vernon-ct.gov/ police/ History%20About%20Us.html
