Fast Facts about Hartford, CT
Hartford is the capital of the State of Connecticut. It is located in Hartford County on the Connecticut River, north of the center of the state. As of the 2000 census, it had a population of 121,578, but a July 1, 2005 Census estimate put the city's population at 124,397. It is the third largest city in the state, after Bridgeport and New Haven. Greater Hartford is also the largest metro area in Connecticut and 44th in the country (2004 census estimate) with a population of 1,184,241.
Sometimes referred to as the "insurance capital of the world," Hartford houses many of the world's insurance company headquarters, and insurance is one of the region's major industries. (The State of Connecticut is sometimes still known as "the land of steady habits.") The region has a relatively low population of adults between the ages of 18 and 25, although Hartford itself has a relatively young population.
Hartford's West End is home to Elizabeth Park, the oldest and largest municipal rose garden in the country. Hartford is also home to Bushnell, Colt, Goodwin, Rocky Ridge, Keney, Pope, and Riverside Parks.
After Dutch explorer Adriaen Block visited the area in 1614, fur traders from the New Netherland colony set up trade at Fort Goede Hoop (Good Hope) at the confluence of the Connecticut River and the Park River as early as 1623 but abandoned their post by 1654. The neighborhood near the site is still known as Dutch Point. The first English settlers arrived in 1635. The settlement was originally called Newtown. One theory about the origins of the name "Hartford" is that in 1637, to honor the English town of Hertford.
The pastor of the church that founded Hartford, Thomas Hooker, early delivered a sermon which inspired the writing of the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, a document (ratified January 14, 1639) investing the people with the authority to govern, rather than ceding it to a higher power. Some historians credit Hooker's concepts of self-rule as being a forerunner of the U.S. Constitution.
On December 15, 1814, delegations from New England gathered at the Hartford Convention to discuss secession from the United States. Later in the century, Hartford was a center of abolitionist activity.
In July 6, 1944, the Hartford Circus Fire became one of the deadliest fires in the history of the United States.
On November 3, 1981, Thirman L. Milner became the city's first African-American mayor and the first black mayor elected in New England.
In 1987, Carrie Saxon Perry was elected mayor of Hartford, the first African-American woman mayor of a major American city.
Starting in the late 1950s, as the suburbs ringing Hartford continued to grow and flourish, the capital city began a long economic decline. This decline may have been accelerated by construction of automobile highways (including I-84 & I-91 which intersect in downtown Hartford) built to make access to the suburbs easier. People with the means to do so started moving out of the city and into the suburbs and as the years went by people kept moving farther out. By the beginning of the twenty-first century, many workers in Hartford lived in towns (including Canton, Simsbury, Avon, Hebron, Marlborough and Cromwell) located more than a twenty-minute daily commute from the city. In the last few years, revitalization efforts have started with the common goal being to get more people living downtown which before had become desolate when employees left the city.
Hartford's neighborhoods are a diverse and historic lot. Downtown Hartford is the location of the central business district. Parkville is named for the confluence of the north and the south branches of the Park River; it is home to Real Art Ways. Frog Hollow is home to Pope park. Asylum Hill is the location of the headquarters of several insurance companies. The West End is home to the Mark Twain House and the Governor's residence. Sheldon/Charter Oak is the location of the historic Charter Oak monument and the former Colt factory. The North East neighborhood is home to Keney Park. The South End is home to the city's "Little Italy". The South Green is host to Hartford Hospital. The South Meadows is the site of Hartford-Brainard Airport and Hartford's industrial park. The North Meadows has several car dealerships and is the location of the Dodge Music Center. Other neighborhoods in Hartford: Barry Square, Behind the Rocks, Blue Hills, Clay Arsenal, Southwest, and Upper Albany.
Central Business District.
Greater Hartford is an international center of the insurance industry, with companies such as CIGNA, Aetna, and The Hartford based in the city. The area is also home to Colt Firearms and large corporations like United Technologies (the corporate parent of Pratt & Whitney, Otis Elevator, Sikorsky Aircraft, Carrier Corporation, Hamilton Sundstrand, UTC Fire & Security and UTC Fuel Cells).
Nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Hartford was a major manufacturing and publishing city; but, as in many other Western industrial cities, many factories have been closed, relocated, or reduced. Hartford has long been important to insurance companies and still is occasionally called the "insurance capital of the world," though recent insurance mergers have hurt Hartford. MetLife and Lincoln Financial have cut their Hartford workforces and MassMutual has relocated its Hartford operations to Enfield, Connecticut to be closer to its headquarters in Springfield, Massachusetts. Recently, though, Hartford has shown that it is still a viable business location. St. Paul Travelers has announced it will bring 600 jobs to the area (500 of them in downtown Hartford); Aetna is moving more than 3,500 employees to the city from Middletown, Connecticut.
Colleges and Universities
Hartford is home to several institutions such as Trinity College in the city's Barry Square neighborhood, the Hartford Conservatory (in the Asylum Hill neighborhood), The Institute of Living, Capital Community College (located downtown), the University of Connecticut School of Business (also downtown), Hartford Seminary (in the West End), the University of Connecticut School of Law (also in the West End) and Rensselaer at Hartford (a North Meadows branch campus of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute). Astride the border with neighboring West Hartford are The Hartt School, a performing arts conservatory attached to the University of Hartford, and The Hartford Art School, also attached to the University of Hartford.
