East Haddam

Nestled on the Connecticut River, East Haddam is a picturesque New England town rich in history, culture and natural beauty.

The town’s 56.6 acres of rolling countryside are dotted with quaint neighborhoods, old farmsteads, scenic lakes and state parks. Residents and visitors alike enjoy the tranquil natural setting of this region that the Nature Conservancy has named one of the “The Last Great Places.” Beginning in the early 1900s, East Haddam became known as a resort area offering the appeal of rural charm and natural scenery. Points of interest include the imposing castle-like residence of famous actor William Gillette, which was completed in 1914 and sits high on the banks of the Connecticut River, where it now stands as the centerpiece of Gillette Castle State Park. Devil’s Hopyard State Park sits on the Eightmile River, where a spectacular waterfall cascades through a hemlock gorge.

Culture and the arts also play an important role in town life. The Goodspeed Opera House features a 400-seat theater and offers a variety of nationally acclaimed musicals. During summer months, the Goodspeed Green on the Connecticut River is the site of “Music on the River,” showcasing talented bands and musical groups amid splendid scenery. The East Haddam Historical Society Museum chronicles the history of the town. Historic sites include the Nathan Hale School House, a one-room schoolhouse built in 1750 where Connecticut Revolutionary War hero Nathan Hale served as schoolmaster.
