Haddam, an incorporated town of Washington county, is a station on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy R. R. in the township of the same name, 14 miles west of Washington, the county seat. It was founded in 1869, when J. W. Taylor opened a store there and a postoffice was established. West Haddam was started about the same time by a man named Whitney and for several years there was a spirited rivalry, the postoffice sometimes being located in one town and sometimes in another. In 1874 Whitney gave up the fight and removed his store to the present town. Haddam has 2 banks, a weekly newspaper (the Clipper), a telephone company, a township graded school, a good retail trade, and an international money order postoffice with four rural routes. It is a shipping point for a large agricultural district in the western part of the county. The population in 1910 was 408.
