The first European settler to live permanently in the area later to become the town of Somers was Benjamin Jones, who arrived there in 1689, although he and family mainly used their dwelling there as a summer residence, and even moved away from the area for a period of time because of fear of neighboring native American tribes.

Several more families started moving to the area around 1711 to help settle a village, which was initially called Wallop, before changing it to East Enfield. In 1734, East Enfield formally became a town and changed its name to Somers, in honor of the English Whig politician and statesman, John Baron, 1st Baron Somers.
In 1749, Somers formally joined the Connecticut colony.

It currently houses two prison penitentiaries for the Connecticut Department of Corrections; North Correctional Institution and Osborn Correctional Institution, the former used to be death row for state prisoners whilst the latter used to house the state’s execution chamber.

John Somers, who the town was named after, has been described as “the greatest man of his age” by one prominent admirer and historian; he played a central figure in both the English so-called ‘Glorious Revolution’ in 1688 and the Acts of Union between England and Scotland in 1707. He undoubtedly helped shape not only the world in which he lived but also the world in which we currently live in. We at SURE LOCK & KEY also want to shape the society we live in today by offering people the very best local residential, commercial, and automotive locksmith service near them imaginable and on the current marketplace.
