Topography

The town largely rests in what is known as the Connecticut River Valley. Along the eastern edge is the Connecticut River. An extensive network of hills and mountains surrounds the town in all directions.


Development

The town's most densely populated area is downtown at the very bottom of the valley. Because of the area's very hilly terrain, and relatively little flat land, many buildings are on steep grades, quite close together. This topography has helped to create an urban atmosphere.

The southern section of the town is predominantly one or two family houses with a mix of triple deckers. Commercial and industrial operations play a relatively minor role in this section of town, with heavy concentration on the U.S. Route 5/Canal Street artery that cuts through the area.
