About Lisbon

Lisbon is the land between two rivers, according to Indian lore. It is bounded by the Shetucket and Quinebaug Rivers. Running through the center of Lisbon is Route 169, a scenic road which is in the National Heritage Corridor.

A 32.1 mile section of Route 169 was designated a State Scenic Highway in 1991, and a National Scenic Highway by the Federal Highway Administration in 1996. A ride along this road defines the beauty and charm that is New England.

This quiet, rural community with an excellent and modern school system also offers cultural, recreational, commercial and retail opportunities in a modern and scenic setting.
