Higganum, CT's Dramatic New Wedding Setting

Riverbend finds its home within the newly revitalized D&H Scovil Company Mill No. 4 buildings, which date back to the late 19th century. Strategically situated along Candlewood Hill, mere steps from the picturesque village green and town center, Riverbend embraces its historical roots while reflecting a vibrant, contemporary community.

Higganum, whose name is derived from a Native American term translated as "Great Bend in River," is where three significant brooks—Candlewood Hill Brook, Ponsett Brook, and Bible Rock Brook—merge to form the Higganum River. A bend in the river symbolizes taking a new direction and going off on a lifetime journey taken together. Hence the name for your perfect venue.
