This area was originally a part of the Town of Norwich "nine miles square" acquired from the sachems of the Mohegan Indians in June 1659, a portion of which later was known as the New Concord Society. In the early 1700's this land, west-northwest of the Norwich Town Plot, was opened to additional settlers. The nature of the region, being wild and rugged, presented a challenge to the pioneers. Settlement began and the area developed rapidly. New Concord Society was organized and approved by the General Assembly in 1737. A site was accepted in 1739 for the construction of a meetinghouse, which was erected soon after. In 1786 the members of New Concord Society, by action of the General Assembly, were "hereby incorporated into a distinct Town by the name of Bozrah," and thus became the eighty-sixth town in the State of Connecticut, believed to be the only one with this name in the Country. The name is of Hebrew origin meaning an enclosure or sheepfold.
