NORWICH, CONNECTICUT PROPERTY EST. 1929 A scenic tree-lined lane in Norwich, Connecticut, leads to the elegant The Spa at Norwich Inn, an august red brick Georgian-style manor built in 1929. Immediately, it became a haven for the rich and famous and drew luminaries such as George Bernard Shaw, Charles Laughton, Frank Sinatra, and the Prince of Wales. Originally conceived as a civic project by the residents of Norwich, the popular inn passed through a succession of owners until it was eventually acquired by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation in 1994. A $14 million restoration increased the size of each luxurious guestroom and enhanced the spa, which upon completion, was the largest spa on the East Coast. Having fallen on hard times after World War II, the Inn served as a holding tank for the local police department.
