Families began to settle the area in 1636 in Naubuc Farms. The local Native Americans were friendly and peaceful and sold land to the newcomers. In 1672, Eastbury was formed from Naubuc Farms. By 1690, residents desired to become a separate community and that petition was granted in 1693 to become Glassenbury. The town was named for the English town of the same name. It is said these are the only two towns by that name in the world. See this history page for more historical information about Glastonbury.
