A Quick History of Tolland

Tolland was incorporated as a town in 1722, about 60 years before it was designated as the Tolland County seat. A courthouse, jail and school were built to accommodate the needs of the growing population. Today, the town maintains its historical roots (converting many of the old municipal buildings into local museums) while looking toward the future.
