Located 10 miles southeast of Springfield, 48 miles southwest of Worcester, 82 miles southwest of Boston, and 152 miles from New York City, Hampden is a small country town nestled amidst gentle hills & mountains. The Scantic River meanders through town reminding residents of the old plow shops, tanneries and blacksmith shops that were once common in the area. Today the area is a mix of new homes and old homesteads. The population of just under 5000, enjoys a great quality of life and is surrounded by natural beauty. The Wetlands in the area are a special attraction and the center point of the Audubon Society’s Laughing Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, built around the former home of Thornton W. Burgess, well-known author of children’s nature books. Hampden retains that feel of the old days where neighbors know each other by name and it’s not unusual to see couples and families walking quietly down the road.
