From Hadlyme, drive northwest a few miles to East Haddam, where you'll find the wonderful old Goodspeed Opera House.



East Haddam, on the east side of the Connecticut Rivernorth of Chester and Hadlyme (map), is famous for the historic Goodspeed Opera House and neighboring Gelson House inn and restaurant.

It's a village noted for its music as well as musical drama.

At the southern end of the town is Gillette Castle State Park, crowned by the weird and eerie castle-mansion built by famous Victorian actor-millionaire William Gillette.

At the foot of the hill holding Gillette Castle, the historic Chester-Hadlyme ferry carries cars across the broad Connecticut River in the warmer months, as it has for centuries. More...
