Hadlyme is one of those towns that isn't actually a town. Made up of parts of Lyme and East Haddam, Hadlyme has its own town center consisting of historic buildings. Hadlyme's Public Hall dates to 1911 and is still a part of town life. To learn about the town center or public hall, visit http://hadlymehall.com/About.html.
Hadlyme is best known for the Chester-Hadlyme Ferry. Established in 1769, Warner's Ferry was run by a local. At the time, it was the only way to cross the river. The ferry was renamed in 1882 when the town of Chester took over its function. While there are now other ways to cross the river, a trip on the Chester-Hadlyme Ferry is still a favorite activity for tourists and locals.
