The James Hazelton House is a property in Haddam, Connecticut that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. Dating from c.1720, it has also been known as the Hazelton-Hayden House.[1]

It was built by James Hazelton (1694-1773).[2] It includes Post-medieval English and other architecture.[1]

When listed the property included one contributing building and one non-contributing building on an area of 4 acres (1.6 ha).[1]

The 1987 National Register nomination described the house as "architecturally significant as a well-preserved colonial-period house with an exceptionally fine interior and an unusual building history." The house was also deemed important for a "long continuous association with the extended Hazelton/Hayden family, prominent citizens of Haddam for over 200 years."[2]

It is a contributing property in the NRHP-listed Haddam Center Historic District.
