Hartford-A City With Heart

5-10-11 & 6-23-13

Hartford is a city of over 14,000 that was incorporated in 1883. The early settlers found potential for industry and comfortable living. Today its a great destination for visitors with its many parks and proximity to other nearby attractions.. It’s also close to Holy Hill Basilica and Cedarburg, which Al and I have also visited.

Some views of downtown:

In 2011 the Jack Russell Memorial Library was being built.


Our most recent visit being yesterday in 2013, we see a library finished and in operation.

We had dinner at The Mineshaft, a popular restaurant in the area.

  1. Love the pictures and your write-ups; you write soooo well. Just where is Hartford? from Madison, that is? Would I take the interstate to get there? Keep up the good work Laurie; it looks like a lot of work to me, but I thank you!!
