Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 46.3 square miles (120.0 km²), of which, 44.0 square miles (114.0 km²) of it is land and 2.3 square miles (6.0 km²) of it (5.01%) is water. It is located in the Connecticut River Valley with a majority of the town's eastern border along the Connecticut River. However, part of the border is the Salmon River on the east side, which causes the Connecticut river to divide the community of Haddam Neck from the rest of town. Haddam is the only town in Connecticut with residents on both sides of the river[2], however there is no modern bridge or ferry within the town limits. The area in and around Haddam (Chester, Deep River, Haddam, Essex, Old Saybrook) was recently named one of the 40 last great places in the Western Hemisphere in accordance with its nearly untouched river and surrounding forests.[citation needed]
