Wedged between the Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley, Connecticut’s Quiet Corner is known locally as ‘the last green valley’ between Boston and Washington. The 12 miles of CT 169 between Brooklyn and Woodstock induce sighs of contentment and frequent pullovers.
Incorporated in 1713, Pomfret is at the heart of the Quiet Corner. It's one of the oldest towns in the state and today includes the villages of Abington, Elliotts, Pomfret Center and Pomfret Landing. There is no formal town center, but a scattering of interesting things to do and see can be found here.
