The History of Norwalk begins with the original inhabitants of the area. There is archaeological evidence that suggests substantial pre-contact inhabitancy of the area by human beings dating back as early as 5000 years ago.
The native people who first contacted European settlers at Norwalk were the Norwalke Indians, a small tribe of the Siwanoy. The first recorded contact was made in 1614 by Dutch navigator Adriaen Block. Block mentions his visit to the Norwalk Islands in the records of a fur trading expedition with Native Americans along the Connecticut coast.
