In February of this year the Middlesex Land Trust, in partnership with the Connecticut River Gateway Commission, purchased approximately fifty acres of open space for permanent protection in Haddam Neck. This new preserve offers breathtaking views across the river to Haddam Meadows State Park from a rough path that runs along the base of dramatic cliffs created from the properties historic use as a quarry.

The land has been named the Brainerd Quarry Preserve to reflect the historic importance of the Brainerd Family in Haddam.
