Lake Pocotopaug

Lake Pocotopaug is surrounded by numerous homes. Most are year-round residences, although some summer vacation cottages dot the shore. It is especially noted for two islands in its center, separated by a narrow, shallow strait (both of which have cabins). Many summer resorts were built around the Lake's History during the 1940's. The influx of visitors to this beautiful area increased in part due to the availability of the rail travel from New York and surrounding areas.

Comstock Bridge

Built in 1791 and named by General Comstock, the Comstock Bridge spans the Salmon River and connects East Hampton to Colchester, CT. In the 1930s The Comstock Bridge was extensively renovated by the Civilian Conservation Corps and is  listed on the National Register of CT Historic Places.
