The Town of Cromwell [1], located in Middlesex County, covers 13.5 square miles of Central Connecticut and is approximately 12 miles south of the City of Hartford. The Mattabasset River defines Cromwell's western and southern boundaries, while the Connecticut River defines the community to the east. The community of Rocky Hill, a suburban community with a strong commercial presence, bounds Cromwell to the north. Other nearby communities include the rural Town of Berlin and the historic City of Middletown.

The formerly rural Cromwell has developed rapidly over the past 30 years. The Town now consists of a blend of residential, commercial and light industrial development that can be described as "sprawling suburban." Population has increased rapidly in the Town over the past 10 years, far outpacing the ability of the US Census to convey accurate figures. The number of new residents has prompted the necessary construction of new schools and updated infrastructure to accommodate the growing numbers. Cromwell has also experienced a rise in its number of senior citizens; concerned residents have cited a responsibility to address the increasing needs of this growing population.
