Hartford, CT: Insurance Capital of the World

Hartford is Connecticut’s capital and fourth-largest city after the coastal cities of Bridgeport, New Haven, and Stamford. Founded in 1637, this 18-square-mile city, is one of the oldest cities in the United States and was the historic seat of Hartford County until the state disbanded county government in 1960. The towns of West Hartford, Newington, Wethersfield, East Hartford, Bloomfield, South Windsor, and Windsor are its closest neighbors. With a population of 124,775 in 2010, the capital city offers world class dining, international cultural attractions, award winning entertainment venues and some of the largest corporations in the state.

From its origins as a Connecticut River trading post in 1633, Hartford has become not only the state capital but also the insurance capital of the world, with a slew of historical attractions, a thriving arts and entertainment center, a revitalized riverfront and beautiful parks and public gardens. It was here that the lovable Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer were born in the imagination of celebrated author Mark Twain and immortalized on paper during the writer’s Hartford years. Twain’s home and those of fellow literary figures Harriet Beecher Stowe and Noah Webster are open to the public. The Wadsworth Atheneum, the oldest public art museum in the U.S., houses Pilgrim-Century furniture, the Amistad collection and a special treasure hunt system to entice kids to explore the museum’s works. The Bushnell Park, the oldest publicly funded park, The Hartford Courant, the oldest continuously published newspaper, and Hartford Public, the second-oldest operating secondary school, are among its greatest assets.
