Mystic is a small village of just around 4,000 people on the eastern coast of Connecticut. Straddling the Mystic River, which flows into Long Island Sound, the village is not an incorporated municipality. The part of Mystic to the west of the Mystic River is governed by the town of Groton while the part to the east by Stonington. The two halves of Mystic are connected by the Mystic River Bascule Bridge.

Mystic is famous as the home of Mystic Seaport, the country's biggest maritime museum. Here, visitors can view different types of period ships.

The history of Mystic goes back to the 17th century, when it has inhabited by the Pequot Indians. According to archaeological findings, the Pequot built a settlement called Siccanemos on the west bank of the Mystic River. They were separated from the Iroquois Indians, who inhabited the northwest, and were buffered from any conflicts.

As with many Native American tribes, the Pequois were decimated upon contact with Europeans, which introduced Old World diseases such as small pox, plague and measles, for which the indigenous people were not immuned. Their territory was reduced as English and Dutch settlers move in. This resulted in occasional hostility.

By the turn of the 18th century, there were three villages along the Mystic River. Where several creeks converge into the Mystic River estuary lies the village of Head of the River, now called Old Mystic.

Today Mystic is a popular domestic tourist destination. It has three historic districts namely Mystic Bridge Historic District, Rossie Velvet mill Historic District and Mystic River Historic District.
