Surrounded by gently rolling hills and sloping mountains, the small rural town of Hampden, Massachusetts is home to around 5,000 residents. The town is bordered on the west by East Longmeadow, on the north by Wilbraham, on the east by Monson, and on the south by Stafford and Somers, Connecticut. Furthermore, Hampden is only one-hundred fifty-two miles from New York City, eighty-two miles southwest of Boston, forty-eight miles southwest of Worcester, and just ten miles southeast of Springfield.
Meandering through the town is the Scantic River which was once lined by blacksmith shops, tanneries, and old plow shops. This natural feature adds an undeniable charm, as well as a delightful beauty to the community. Speaking of charm, in the Old Academy Hall, you’ll find displays of old letters, diaries, and clothes preserved by the Historical Society. Another noteworthy attraction in Hampden is the Laughing Brook Wildlife Sanctuary of the Audobon Society. Constructed around Thornton W. Burgess’s former home, the Sanctuary is the result of the area’s natural topography.
In addition to these spectacular amenities, Hampden also has an excellent public school system, the Hampden-Wilbraham Regional School District. The district operates four elementary schools, Green Meadows, Mile Tree, Soule Road, and Stony Hill, as well as two middle schools, Thornton Burgess and Wilbraham Middle School.
