About Hamden

About Hamden
The Town of Hamden is an enchanting community set amid mountains and lush, rolling hills along the Mill River in southern Connecticut, just a few miles north of Long Island Sound. Hamden's founders were part of the first European settlement in the Colonies, and the town still retains much of its historic charm.

Hamden's abundant natural beauty has been lovingly preserved with numerous parks and walking trails. Add inviting shops, varied cultural and recreatonal activities, historic attractions and some of the finest restaurants in the area, and it's easy to see why many consider Hamden one of the most appealing mid-sized communities in New England.

Hamden's population of over 51,000 is spread across 33 square miles in New Haven County, just three miles north of New Haven and Yale University. Residents enjoy the safety and security of a small community while reaping the benefits of proximity to a larger urban area with an Ivy Leaque school. Yale also enhances cultural and entertainment opportunities for Hamden residents, many of whom are employed by the University.

Aggressive development and marketing strategies give Hamden's thriving business community an extra boost, luring new businesses and helping existing companies grow. Healthcare, education, government and retail all play important roles in Hamden's diverse economic base.

Hamden combines the best of small-town New England life with easy access to the cultural and entertainment offerings of a larger community. Its beautiful setting, abundant resources and thriving business community make Hamden a delightful place to live and work.
