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.

Living in Hartford

Hartford apartments for rent can be found throughout the different neighborhoods that make up the state capital. Aside from being the city's primary business district, downtown Hartford also offers a variety of historical sites for residents and tourists to explore. Bushnell Park offers a variety of activities, including arch tours of the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Arch, carousel rides, an outdoor performance pavilion, Pumphouse Gallery, a Spanish American War Memorial and the beautiful Corning Fountain. Residents can also tour the Connecticut State Capitol building Monday through Friday.

Just 1.5 miles from the downtown district is the West End neighborhood of Hartford. Here you'll find historical attractions such as the Mark Twain House (Twain wrote "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" while living in Hartford) and the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center. Several major insurance companies occupy Farmington Avenue, the largest historic apartment renovation still occupied today.
