    Users Assigned: Kazmi  

    Groton is a town located on the Thames River in New London County, Connecticut. The population was 39,907 at the 2000 census.

    The main contractor for making submarines in Groton is Electric Boat Corporation which also works for organizations such as the United States Navy and for their Sub Base in New London as well. Pfizer which is a pharmaceutical company is one of its prime employers. University of Connecticut’s regional campus is also located inside Gorton at its Avery point section.

    Groton was incorporated as a town in 1705, when it separated from New London. Incorporation made it less necessary for Groton residents to cross the Thames to New London, a hazardous task at the time.

    Soon after incorporation, the first Baptist church in Connecticut, now known as the Old Mystic Baptist Church, was founded in Groton in 1705.

    In September 6, 1781, the Battle of Groton Heights took place. British forces aided by Benedict Arnold attacked Ft. Griswold and then set fire to New London and Groton Bank.

    Groton originally encompassed the present towns of Groton and Ledyard. The center of town was located at the intersection of present-day Routes 184 and 117. The town's first school and church, the tavern and a stagecoach shop (the current Haley House) were located at this intersection.

    Ledyard was and is still known as the Center of Gorton despite it separating from Gorton in 1836 to maintain an individual identity of its own as a town.
