Bridgewater Town Hall is located at 44 Main Street South, Bridgewater CT 06752; phone: 860-354-2731.
Bridgewater was settled around 1734, and incorporated as a separate town in 1856. The name is probably descriptive. It occupies a high plateau broken by brook valleys, which rises in the north to 950 feet. The Housatonic River forms the western and southern boundary. Bridgewater has attracted many summer homes.
