The town’s 56.6 acres of rolling countryside are dotted with quaint neighborhoods, old farmsteads, scenic lakes and state parks.

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.

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.
