Welcome to Trumbull

History

The Trumbull area was long occupied by the Paugussett Indian nation in historic times, before European encounters. During the late 1630s, English colonists started a settlement at what became the Town of Trumbull, as part of the Great Migration from England. This was related to the coastal settlement of Stratford, Connecticut.
​​​​​​​

The farmers in the northwest area of the town of Stratford petitioned the Colony of Connecticut in 1725 to establish their own separate village. The farmers wanted to name their village Nichol's Farms, after the family that owned a large farm in its center, but the Colony called it Unity. In 1744 Unity merged with the village of Long Hill (organized in 1740) to form the Society of North Stratford.
​​​​​​​

Following the American Revolutionary War, town residents unsuccessfully petitioned for ten years seeking independence; finally the Connecticut General Assembly granted complete town rights to Trumbull in October 1797. The town was named for Jonathan Trumbull (1710–1785): a merchant, patriot, and statesman. He was a strong supporter of General George Washington and served as Revolutionary War Governor of Connecticut.
​​​​​​​

Displaced from most of their historic land holdings, in the late 19th century, the Paugussett were assumed to have assimilated to the majority population, as many had intermarried. They raised their children with Native American culture, maintaining some identity. In the late 19th century, a Paugussett man purchased a former Paugussett cemetery in Trumbull, and had it recognized as a reservation by the state. In the late 20th century, the people purchased additional land for more reservation land. The Golden Hill Paugussett Indian Nation has been recognized as a tribe by the state of Connecticut.​​​​​​​
