New London County contains reservations of four of the five state-recognized Indian tribes, although the Paugassett were historically located further west. New London County was one of four original counties in Connecticut that were established on May 10, 1666 by an act of the Connecticut General Court. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 772 square miles, of which 665 square miles is land and 107 square miles is water.
