History Brief:
This area was settled as part of Franklin to the west and Lisbon to the east. Settlement started about 1700 and was part of the Society of Hanover established May 1761. In July 1856, William Sprague of Cranston, Rhode Island, purchased 300 acres on the Shetucket River and founded a cotton mill, which became the foundation of the manufacturing village of Baltic. In 1861 the new town was incorporated to include Hanover, Baltic and Versailles, and named after Sprague. Town vital records begin 1861.
