Overview of Hartford

Hartford apartments for rent are located in the capital of Connecticut and the insurance capital of the world. The first settlers to visit Hartford came to the area in the 1600s. Although the Dutch traders occupied the land for quite some time, it wasn't until Rev. Thomas Hooker and his followers set themselves up along the Connecticut River that the area was considered to be properly settled. Today, more than 124,000 people reside in the state capital.
