Overview


Located at the head of the Thames River, Norwich is known as "the Rose of New England." This small city boasts a complex history, from its role as an important Colonial seaport to its development into a thriving manufacturing city. The nearly two hundred images in Norwich bring this history to life, from the industry and innovation represented by the Ponemah Mill, to the grandeur of the Wauregan Hotel, to the devastation of the flood of 1886. The city's many sides can be seen in these pages, which explore not only the people and institutions that made Norwich what it is today but also the details of life as it used to be.
