Town Land, Waters, and History Are Linked

Do look up, down, and all around for town stories in plain sight

The East Haddam Land Trust and East Haddam Historical Society have collaborated on a series of mini-documentaries that draw the connections between land preservation and local history.


The "Saving Land, Saving History" project comprises three videos on local land preserves (Hammond Mill, Patrell, and Bernstein) and two more profiling the land trust and the historical society.. The videos feature interviews with local historians and conservationists, beautiful new drone and earthbound footage, and historical photo archives.

"Saving Land, Saving HIstory" was awarded the 2021 Excellence in Conservation Award from the CT Land Conservation Council and the 2021 Award of Merit from the CT League of History Organizations.
