In the nineteenth century, East Haddam‘s Upper Landing was home to a fashionable hotel known as the Champion House. The original brick hotel was built in 1782 for Samuel Phillips Lord and it was later purchased by Noah Buckley. The Federal-style building was later Victorianized and enlarged in 1839, 1858, and 1880. Today, it is the Champion House Apartments.
