Town Description:

East Haddam is enriched with history, natural beauty and rural character, East Haddam inhabits 56.6 square miles of rolling countryside dotted with old farmsteads, lakes, handsome state parks and quaint neighborhoods. The majestic Connecticut River, the town's western boundary, brought settlers and commerce to this area. Historic homes , old stone walls that wind through the woods, post and beam barns and early American buildings are a testament to the early life of a trading and farming town.

Within East Haddam, the Village of Moodus was the site of a dozen water-powered textile mills during the nineteenth century and the home to the eastern European immigrants who worked them. Later, people seeking refuge from city life flocked to summer resorts in Moodus, several of which continue in business to this day. Moodus is named for its famed "Moodus Noises," strange audible rumblings that are seismic in origin and that figure prominently in Native American lore.

East Haddam is also the home to the headwaters of the Eight Mile River, which runs through a greenway of protected open space. The Devil's Hopyard State Park protects the Eight Mile River as it tumbles over a rushing waterfall and through a hemlock gorge. The Salmon River borders the town to the North and is a site of a state project to restore anadramous fish to Connecticut River tributaries. Three lakes, Bashan Lake, Moodus Reservoir and Lake Hayward, provide recreation and scenic beauty to all who visit. East Haddam's woodland and winding country roads beckon to those who want to hark back to a simpler time. So come and visit East Haddam and enjoy the ambiance, the slow pace, and you will know why people keep coming back!
