About Norwich

The “Rose City” of southeastern Connecticut is blooming with major revitalization efforts, including the new 89,711 square foot Mercantile Exchange in Downtown Norwich, and recent designation of the Downtown as a Main Street Community. From its 19th century emergence as a retail and manufacturing center, Norwich has continued its role as a leader in southeastern Connecticut. With a multiethnic population and organized efforts to revitalize the downtown Chelsea District, Norwich is adapting to its new position as a service and tourist destination.
