All About: Bozrah

Population: 2,357

County: New London County

Size: 20.2 square miles

History: The Wikipedia history for this town appears to have been written by someone from the 18th century who somehow got access to the internet. But what appears to be of the utmost concern to the town is how it got its name.  There seems to be some confusion about which Bible passage is responsible for Bozrah’s name, but I’m voting for the one that is somehow related to a “flamboyant” man in “parti-colered homespun.” I don’t really have the patience to sort it out so you’ll just have to read it on Wikipedia for yourself.

Something Weird: Um… if the part-colored homespun isn’t weird enough for you, then I don’t know what to tell you.
