Oakdale

Trip Planner USA  /  Connecticut  /  Mystic Country  /  Oakdale
Montville is a town in New London County, Connecticut, United States. The population was 19,571 at the 2010 census.The villages of Chesterfield, Mohegan, Oakdale, and Uncasville are located within the Town; the latter two have their own ZIP codes. Residents of the Town often identify with these villages more than the Town of Montville as a whole. The center of Oakdale is very small, consisting of only a few private residences and the post office. The Mohegan Sun casino resort is often referred to as being in "Uncasville," although the village is three miles to the south. The Mohegan refer to Uncasville as it is named for a prominent sachem of theirs from the 17th century.HistoryIn the 17th century, when English settlers arrived, southeastern Connecticut was the scene of rivalry between the Pequot people, the dominant Native American group in the New London area, and the newly independent Mohegan. The latter became friendly to the English. For defense against the Pequot, the Mohegan sachem Uncas had established a fortified village on a promontory above the Thames River within what is now the town of Montville. The Mohegan village, now known as Fort Shantok, was protected on the inland side by palisades first built in about 1636 at the time of the Pequot War, rebuilt during wars with the Narragansett people circa 1653–1657, and rebuilt again at the time of King Philip's War (1675–1676).
