East Granby CT Town Travel Business Information
Welcome to historic East Granby, Connecticut. East Granby was incorporated in June 1858. It was once part of Simsbury. Covering 17.4 sq. miles and populated by 4,390 residents the town is located north central Connecticut and was originally part of the enormous plot of land in the Simsbury area granted to John Griffen of Windsor in 1663.
East Granby’s population boomed in the early eighteenth century due to the discovery of large copper deposits. Although the industry peaked early because of declining copper values and increasing difficulties in extracting the ore, its local history was capped by the issue of copper coins by a local blacksmith named Higley in 1737 and 1739. The coins are so valuable now that are preserved by museums as well as private collectors.
