City Pier, New London Waterfront Park
The first inhabitants along the western side of the Massapequatuck (Thames) River — the Mohegan tribe — settled here since the time of Sachem Uncas’ birth toward the end of the 16th century. This area — roughly between present day Norwich and New London — was and continues to be the vital heart of Mohegan country. Lead by Tribal members, this fascinating tour will include stories demonstrating how crucial the Thames River was for food, wildlife, transportation, and trade as well as their relationship to the colonists.
