Hartford Connecticut History

Hartford, Connecticut, occupies a position as one of the most important cities in the state's history. Hartford became the only capital of Connecticut in 1701, after being the capital of New Haven, New Jersey and New York City. It also included capital from 1801 to 1873, sharing this role with New Orleans and Hartford from 1703 to 1705, Hartford again in 1805 and 1807, then again between 1707 and 1711, and the role between Newhaven and Connecticut from 1701 to 1873.

When Chatham was part of Middletown in 1767, it was divided into East Haddam and Midsletowown. Suffield, incorporated in May 1674, was annexed to Connecticut on May 1, 1676 as the capital of the state of Connecticut. In 1824 and 1830, parts of eastern Connecticut along the Chattanooga River, then Chatham, were annexed, and the parts of Granby to the west of these mountains. The part, which included Middle Hadam parish in the east of Haddington from 1741 to 1752, was divided between East and HADAM in 1751.

This area was later called Orford Parish and was part of East Hartford, which was separated from Hartford in 1783. The plantation was named after the towns of Watertown, Newtowne and Dorchester, which are now known as Wethersfield, Hartford and Windsor.

The settlement was originally called Newtown, but was renamed Hartford in 1637 in honor of the English city of Hertford. Hartford became the co-capital of Connecticut and shared the title with New Haven until 1875, when it became the sole capital.

In 1639, a document was passed in Hartford that later served as a model for the US Constitution. In January 1879, the Connecticut House of Representatives (now the state Senate) held its first session in the city.

The papers and reports were presented to the Connecticut Historical Society at the first session of the Hartford State House of Representatives on January 10, 1879.
