About The Area
The area now known as Canterbury was first settled in the 1680s. It was established as a town when it separated from Plainfield in 1703. Located in Windham County, Canterbury encompasses 40.2 square miles and has a population of about 4,700.
Canterbury is home to many historical landmarks, including the Prudence Crandall Museum, which during the mid 19th century was home to the Canterbury Female Academy, the first private educational facility for black women in New England. Just a short drive away is the Captain John Clark House, built around 1790. Located on South Canterbury Road, the house was constructed in the regional “Canterbury style,” having both Georgian and Federal influences. The Prudence Crandall Museum and Captain John Clark House are both believed to be designed by Thomas Gibbs of Plainfield.
