310 Norwich-New London Turnpike
Uncasville, CT 06382
For centuries, the Native American Mohegan tribe hunted and farmed this region, attracted by the abundance of water. Uncasville, chief village in the town of Montville, was named for Uncas, the Mohegan Indian Chief.
Europeans settlers selected Montville for its good soil and water resources. During the Industrial Revolution, Montville had many mills which harnessed the water for power. If the closing of the mills in the last centry was the end of this town's economic future, it was the force that led to its preservation of open spaces. Montville held onto its native beauty of rolling hills, green forests and winding river.
Montville is perhaps best known for the Mohegan Sun. Operated by the Mohegan tribe, this Native American casino offers 176,500 square feet of gaming space, with more than 3,000 slot machines and 192 gaming tables. The casino is decorated using traditional motifs of the tribe. It is currently ranked as the fifth largest casino in the world.
