The town of Hampton is located in northeast Connecticut on lands originally shared byPomfret and Windham. It was incorporated from the towns of Pomfret, Brooklyn,
Canterbury, Mansfield, and Windham in 1786. Hampton is a small rural farming community that has managed to preserve its past.

The Congregational Church is the second oldest building in the state, with portions of the structure dating from 1754. Also preserved is "The House the Women Built", a two story building raised in 1776 by the Sally Bowers and other young women of the town while the men fought in the Continental Army.

At Clark's Corner there is also a liberty pole dating from 1849.  Erected by a resident named Jonathan Clark, it records the distance to Hartford and  intervening towns via the stagecoach of the time.
