The Town of Hartford
The Town of Hartford is a unique and wonderful place in the great State of Vermont. It is located on the border of Vermont and New Hampshire at the intersection of Interstates 89 and 91 as well as US Routes 4 & 5. This is also the site of the confluence of the White and Connecticut Rivers. Hartford is thus a crossroad, the Gateway to Vermont for recreation and commerce alike. With excellent highway, rail, and air services, the Hartford area has long served as a hub for transportation and travel throughout New England, the Northeast, and Canada.
Hartford is in the heart of the beautiful and prosperous "Upper Valley," a region that is home to several renowned educational and medical facilities including the US Veterans Administration Hospital, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Dartmouth College and Medical School, Franklin Pierce College, Granite State College and the Community College of Vermont.
Perhaps more important is the exceptional quality of life enjoyed by area residents. The Upper Valley is comprised of numerous small towns and villages whose residents hold to community-centered, family values, enjoy freedom from crime and violence, and have ready access to excellent schools. They benefit from living in a clean environment with a multitude of outdoor recreational opportunities including boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, with some of the best skiing in New England only a short drive away.
In keeping with Vermont tradition, Hartford is composed of five distinct, historic villages, with a combined population totaling 10,200. Each village has its own history and unique character.
