Connecticut, one of the six New England states, in the northeastern United States. Connecticut was the fifth of the original 13 states ratifying the Constitution of the United States on January 9, 1788, and it played an important role in the development of the United States. Settlement in Connecticut dates from the 1630s and many of the state’s modern towns and cities can trace their origins back to the 17th or 18th century. Hartford is the capital of Connecticut and the center of the state’s largest metropolitan area. Bridgeport is the state’s largest city.

Rural Connecticut retains much of the charm of colonial New England. It is an area of churches with white steeples, charming colonial homes that face elm-shaded streets, and village greens where once, perhaps, the local militia trained for the Continental Army. However, modern Connecticut is principally an urban and suburban residential state. Many of the nation’s early industrial advances, including the development of mass production, first took place in Connecticut. Cities and towns in the state were identified by the products they produced—hats in Danbury, brass in Waterbury, thread in Colchester. Although the economy today is decreasing its reliance on manufacturing, becoming instead more diverse and service-based, the state remains an important producer of such products as electronic equipment, aircraft engines, nuclear-powered submarines, and spacecraft equipment.

The name Connecticut is probably derived from a Native American word, Quinnehtukqut, meaning "beside the long tidal river." The state’s official nickname, adopted in 1959, is the Constitution State, chosen to commemorate the colony’s adoption in 1639 of the Fundamental Orders, sometimes regarded as the first written constitution. Among its numerous unofficial nicknames are the Nutmeg State, an unflattering reference to the reputed attempts of Yankee peddlers from Connecticut to sell wooden nutmegs in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the Arsenal of the Nation, a reference to Connecticut’s role as a major supplier of weapons in the American Revolution (1775-1783) and other wars.

Connecticut is the third smallest state of the Union, with an area of only 5,544 square miles, including 161 square miles of inland water and 538 square miles of coastal water over which it has jurisdiction. Connecticut is roughly rectangular in shape, except for a narrow strip of land in the southwest that projects westward to within about 12 miles of New York City. The state has a maximum distance from east to west is 101 miles and a greatest distance north to south is 73 miles. The mean elevation of Connecticut is approximately 500 feet.

The state’s shoreline, when all the bays and inlets are taken into account, has a total length of 995 km (618 mi). The coastline is deeply indented by long estuaries and rocky inlets, and there are many sandy beaches and stretches of tidal marsh. There are several good harbors along the coast, the most important of which is at New Haven. A few small islands lie offshore in Long Island Sound

Connecticut has long, hot summers and cold winters. The climate does not vary greatly from place to place, although the northwest corner generally experiences more severe winters.

The southwestern coastal area is generally slightly warmer than the rest of the state in summer, and the Taconics are the coldest area in winter. Average July temperatures range from 68° to 72° F, but actual daytime temperatures can rise into the lower 90°s. Average January temperatures range from about 24  in the Taconics to about 30 ° F in the southeast.

Precipitation (rainfall and snowfall) is evenly distributed throughout the year. Most places receive about 40 to 50 inches a year. Severe droughts are uncommon. Thunderstorms and hailstorms are likely to occur in summer. In winter, snowfall is heavy, especially in the northwest.
