A Message from the Office Leader

...and to our beautiful community...

You can click on any of the underlined portions below to link to additional information. 

Middletown is a historic and charming city located on the West Bank of the scenic Connecticut River. It is located in Northern Middlesex County, in the central part of Connecticut and about 16 miles south of Hartford. There is easy access to major highways, airports, railroads and other means of transportation.

Originally a busy sailing port, then an industrial center, Middletown is a diverse mix of rural, suburban and urban living within its 42.3 square miles. The City of Middletown has focused on and done a great job of balancing the needs and comforts of its residents with the commercial development required to help fund services in the City.   There has been a tremendous effort in the past few years to revitalize the North End and the renowned downtown area serves as a college town for Wesleyan University.

In addition to Wesleyan University, Middletown is home to Middlesex Community College and Holy Apostles College and Seminary is located in the adjoining town of Cromwell. Two private, Catholic high schools in town, Xavier High School and Mercy High School, attract students from many surrounding communities. The Middletown public school system consists of 8 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, a technical high school and the newly built Middletown High School.

Major employers in town include Pratt and Whitney, Middlesex Hospital, Connecticut Valley Hospital, Liberty Bank and Wesleyan University. Middletown residents also commute to many surrounding cities. As both New Haven and Hartford are within a ½ hour commute.  The Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce is a great resource for business information in the community. 

Russell Library, in downtown Middletown, is a cultural, educational and entertainment center. Oddfellows Playhouse, a well known youth theater group, is located downtown as well as Kid City Children’s Museum, a hands on play space for children ages 1 – 8.   You can also enjoy a movie at the 12 screen Destinta Theaters in Metro Square.

Main Street and Downtown Middletown is robust with things to do and places to eat.  There is a wide variety of dining options from white tablecloth to el fresco sidewalk bistros. You can enjoy Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Thai and American Cuisine. The famous O’Rourke’s Diner is located on the North end of Main Street and has been featured on the Food Network.  

Middletown and the surrounding communities of Middlesex County have activities for people of all ages, no matter what their interest may be!  

There are parks and nature trails throughout the area including at least 20 hiking trails and at least 12 bike trails (2 including waterfalls). There are 2 miles of trails around the Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown, also a beautiful wedding and event location in the area.  Enjoy visiting Gillette Castle located on the high banks of the Connecticut River in East Haddam. Gillette Castle State Park is the previous home of William Gillette, who played Sherlock Homes around the turn of the 20th century.  Many other state parks are in the area including Devil’s Hopyard, Haddam Meadows and Wadsworth FallsHarbor Park is a 2.6 acre area on the Connecticut River in Middletown and includes a boardwalk, restaurant/nightclub, fishing, seasonal boating excursions and the crew boathouses for Wesleyan University and Middletown High School.  Brownstone Exploration and Discover Park over the bridge in Portland is a great place to enjoy ziplining, rock climbing, cliff jumping and more. 

Sports enthusiasts will find local town/city sports in abundance as well as roller and ice rinks, boating, fishing, bowling alleys and locations for horseback riding. There are at least 9 golf courses within the county and the Tournament Players Club hosts the Annual Travelers Championship Golf Tournament. Sports fans will find Yale University and UCONN both within an easy drive to be able to enjoy collegiate sports events and there are also AHL hockey teams and Double A and Single A baseball affiliates in close proximity.

The Goodspeed Opera House is a historic musical theatre that opened in 1877 and is located alongside the Connecticut River. There are many other theatres and playhouses located in the area, including The Norma Terris Theatre. You can also visit many museums and art galleries as well as the historic Essex Steam Train and Riverboat. Another popular destination in Middlesex County is Lyman Orchards in Middlefield. Lyman Orchards was started in 1741 and has been run by 8 generations of the Lyman family. You can pick your own fruits and vegetables, visit the “Apple Barrel” store, attend their varied events including the apple hunt and corn maze or play on one of their picturesque 18 hole golf courses. This is sure to be something the whole family will enjoy!
