Standout Sights and Attractions
Nearly torn down in the 1970s, the Old State House originally constructed in 1796 features a full-length portrait of George Washington, as well as a natural history museum with displays from the 18th century. A must-see for anyone taking flights to Hartford is the home of acclaimed humorist and author Samuel L. Clemens, better known as Mark Twain. The home of Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," is located next door. As the oldest public art museum in the U.S., the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum is worth exploring as well.
Hartford: Past and Future
From Bushnell Park, the nation's first city-owned park, to the First Church of Christ and the Ancient Burying Ground—where many city founders are buried—Hartford is filled with artifacts from the past. But rest assured, an infusion of high-tech industries is starting to give Hartford a fresh, contemporary look. No attraction better exemplifies the city's new forward-thinking approach than the Connecticut Science Center.
