Middlesex County, Connecticut

 

Middlesex County is a county located in the south central part of the U.S. state of Connecticut. It was created in 1785 from portions of Hartford and New London counties. As of 2010, the population was 165,676.

As is the case with all eight of Connecticut’s counties, there is now no county government, and no county seat. In Connecticut, towns are responsible for all local government activities, including fire and rescue, snow removal, and schools. In a few cases, neighboring towns will share certain resources, e.g. water, gas, etc. However, Middlesex County is merely a group of towns on a map, and no longer has any particular authority.

Geography

According to the 2000 census, the county has a total area of 439.07 square miles (1,137.2 km2), of which 369.26 square miles (956.4 km2) (or 84.10%) is land and 69.81 square miles (180.8 km2) (or 15.90%) is water.

Middlesex County is also the home of Wadsworth Falls
