East Hampton
Incorporated 1767

East Hampton was first settled in 1710, when Gideon Goffe and is family located in an area along the Connecticut River which later became established as the parish of Middle Haddam. Families from the locality moved eastward and settled in the hills surrounding Lake Pocotopaug, and in 1746 named their community East Hampton. In 1767, the town was incorporated as Chatham in honor of the Earl of Chatham in England for his support of the American colonies at that time. The name of the town was changed to East Hampton in 1915. Historically, bell manufacturing mining, and shipbuilding enterprises within the town stood exemplary of early American industry.
