Location of Hartford, Connecticut

Hartford is the capital of the state of Connecticut, in Hartford County. It is located on the Connecticut River, near the center of the state. As of the 2000 census, the population of the city was 121,578. It is the second largest city in the state, after Bridgeport.

Note: a 2003 Census Department estimate showed that New Haven (pop. 124,512) has 125 more residents than Hartford (pop. 124,387). This would make Hartford the third largest city in Connecticut and the 184th largest in the United States (New Haven is #183). The increase of nearly 3,000 people over three years is mostly due to some University of Hartford students being counted in Hartford instead of West Hartford.

Hartford is a city of bustling commerce. It is a major center of finance, government, law and education. It stands at the junction of two busy highways and its skyline is full of modern high-rise towers housing large corporations. Despite some crime/poverty issues that are greatly magnified by the media, Hartford is a melting pot with many cultural institutions such as the Charter Oak Cultural Center, The Bushnell Center for Performing Arts, The Wadsworth Atheneum (the oldest public art museum in the U.S.), the Tony award-winning Hartford Stage and the highly-renowned Artists Collective. Its main newspapers are the daily Hartford Courant and the weekly Hartford Advocate.

It is the home of Trinity College, Capital Community College, Hartford Seminary, the University of Hartford, the University of Connecticut Law School & the University of Connecticut Business School in Downtown. The Institute of Living at Hartford Hospital was one of the first psychiatric hospitals in the nation.

Hartford is also a center of the insurance industry, and home to Colt Firearms and large corporations like United Technologies, Pratt & Whitney, Otis Elevator, Sikorsky Aircraft), AETNA, The Hartford and others.

Harriet Beecher Stowe was originally from the Litchfield, Connecticut area, but settled in Hartford during the 1870s. Her house on Forest Street is now open to the public, right next to her famous neighbor's old mansion, Mark Twain. Mark Twain moved to Hartford in 1874 and lived in Hartford for many years. The Mark Twain House is a national historic site. Twain, whose real name was Samuel Langhorne Clemens, wrote many of his most famous works in Hartford, including The Gilded Age, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Roughing It, and his most read and controversial, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Wallace Stevens, the poet, was an insurance executive in Hartford and Katharine Hepburn, Dwight Freeney and Stephen Cole Kleene were born there.
