Understand[edit]

History[edit]

In 1705, English colonists purchased Newtown from Pohtatuck Indians. It was known as Quanneapague. Newtown had many trading and business ties to the English.

Unfortunately, Newtown became known nationwide on 14 December 2012, when Adam Lanza shot his mother at home and went to Sandy Hook Elementary School where he killed 26 people before killing himself. However, it's also where the game of Scrabble was developed by James Brunot.
