The Northeastern corner of Connecticut is known as Windham County. In 2010 the population was 118,428 including no incorporated cities. The county is 521.47 square miles and 8.71 miles which are water. The county was created on May 12, 1726 from Hartford and New London counties by the Connecticut General Court. Many rivers run through Windham County from the surrounding areas, therefore the name Wonkituck originated which means the "crooked river".
