Overview


Montville is situated along the Thames River, stretching inland over a landscape of uplands that some insist accounts for its name. The town's origins lie in the English settlement of the Mohegan Fields, beginning in the late seventeenth century. Today, it is both a populous suburban community and home to one of the world's largest Native American gambling establishments. Nearly two hundred vintage images appear in Montville, from Colonial homesteads, bucolic landscapes, and noted landmarks like Cochegan Rock, to the industrial pioneering and innovation represented by the Scholfield Woolen Mill, the Robertson Paper Mill, and other nineteenth-century manufactories.
