About Manchester, CT


The first white settlers established homes in Manchester in 1627, and the community steadily grew for more than two centuries. It was the success of the Cheney Brothers silk manufacturing company, founded in 1838, that drove Manchester's period of rapid growth and prosperity. By 1900, nearly a quarter of the city's population was employed by Cheney Brothers. This history informs modern civic pride as does the involvement in Manchester citizens in every major military conflict dating to the Revolutionary War.
