Hamden, Connecticut

Hamden was originally settled in 1638 and later incorporated in 1786. Hamden is a suburb of New Haven situated midway between New York and Boston. It is a thriving town with a population estimated at nearly 60,000. Hamden is commonly referred to as "The Land of the Sleeping Giant" because of the unique hill formation found in the northern section of town. It was also once home to the "Ghost Parking Lot", a famous roadside public art installation located in front of the Hamden Plaza shopping center. In 2008, Hamden was selected by Fortune Magazine and CNN Money as #33 on their "Best Place to Live and Launch" list. Today, Hamden is recognized as being a residential and business community with an attractive blend of urban and suburban lifestyles.

Hamden boasts a rich industrial history. In 1798, four years after Eli Whitney began manufacturing the cotton gin in New Haven, he founded the Eli Whitney Armory which produced muskets for the United States Government. Whitney's factory used water-powered machinery (its location was on the Mill River), and it was one of the first in the country to have standardized, interchangeable parts. The major roadway through Hamden has been named Whitney Avenue in honor of Eli Whitney, which runs past his old factory, now called the Eli Whitney Museum. Like most towns in Connecticut, Hamden underwent significant suburban development during the post-war period. The northern section of town retains a rural character unlike the southern section of town which is more urban, similar to neighboring New Haven. Today, the main industries in the town are retail trade, computer products, manufacture of wire and cable, concrete, pump mixer products, fabricated metals, construction and business services. The top major employers in Hamden include, the town government and school district, Quinnipiac University, Harborside Health Care, and Area Cooperative Education Services (ACES).

Use of asbestos products was prevalent at jobsites in Hamden, particularly within the manufacturing and construction industries, which put workers at risk of asbestos exposure. If you or a family member have been exposed to asbestos, you may be at risk to develop malignant mesothelioma.
