Bara-Hack is a former village in the town of Pomfret, Connecticut.

History[edit]

Bara-Hack is said[by whom?] to have been founded in 1780 or 1790 by two Welsh settlers, Obadiah Higginbotham and John Randall, and their families. The settlement's name, bara-hack, is a Welsh term meaning "breaking of bread". The community was abandoned by 1890,[1] possibly some time after the Civil War.
