In Hampton, Life is Peaceful and Serene
Mature forests, rolling hills, and expansive farms dot the landscape in this rural town, which is beloved for its tight-knit community of neighbors. Its major roads are the two-lane country kind, and they include US-6 (which winds its way east to I-395) and CT-97.
Hampton's proximity to Hartford, CT and Providence, RI have contributed to its growth in recent decades, but that doesn't mean the town has lost its sense of community.

A Quick History of Hampton
America had just gained its independence from Britain when the town of Hampton was incorporated. Once a rural settlement, the area quickly blossomed into a bustling town, complete with factories, one-room schoolhouses, and rustic inns. Today, Hampton still retains its rural heritage while embracing modern growth.
Historic Districts and Landmarks
The Congregational Church, which was built in 1754, is the second oldest building in the state. Also in Hampton are "The House the Women Built," a building dating back to 1776, as well as a liberty pole dating from 1849, which records the distance to Hartford and other towns. The Nipmuck Trail, which was used by Nipmuck and Mohegan Indians before the arrival of migrants, runs the entire length of the town.
