New Haven was founded in 1638 and has long been a center for the Puritans (see also Religion in the United States). New Haven was the colony and state capital (along with Hartford) in the years 1701-1875. The town experienced great immigration of Irish and East European Jews in the 19th century, and is known as an industrial hearth: Eli Whitney 's mass production technique, Charles Goodyear 's rubber vulcanization and Samuel Colt 's revolver were all developed here.

Hartford is the capital of the state of Connecticut, USA with 124,390 residents (U.S. Census, 2017). It is one of the oldest cities in the United States and is located approximately in the middle of the state of the Connecticut River 61 miles above the outlet of Long Island Sound. Hartford is the fourth largest city in the state after Bridgeport, New Haven and Stamford.

Economics and culture

Hartford is an important regional trade center and is the endpoint of the Connecticut River shipping traffic. The city is a center for research, medical treatment and teaching.

Hartford is the seat of many insurance companies, and is considered the United States' premier center for insurance business (from 1794). There are several distilleries and breweries in and around the city. Unemployment is relatively high.

There are a number of universities and several first-class colleges in Hartford. The United States' first free museum of art, A United States' oldest existing newspaper, the Hartford Courant, was founded in 1764. Wadsworth Atheneum, the United States' oldest free museum of art, opened in 1844. The city has several radio and television stations. An annual hip-hop festival is one of several cultural events and the city has a lively theater business.

History

The Algonkin people lived in and around Hartford when Dutch fur traders established a trading station with Fort Hoop on the banks of the Conneticut River in 1623. Ten years later, Jacob Van Curler acquired the lands around Fort Hoop. Englishmen settled north of the fort from 1636. The following year, Hartford got its name. The settlement grew and Hartford gained city status in 1784.

A number of famous people, including authors Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe, lived in Hartford and financial magnate John Pierpont Morgan was born here. The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut (1639), an important model of the American Constitution, was written in Hartford. A group of poets, The Hartford Wits, were active in Hartford in the 18th century. In 1814, the secret Hartford Convention, aimed at revising the American Constitution, held here. For decades after the American Civil War, Hartford was the richest city in the United States (today it is one of the poorest in the United States).

The Capitol building in Connecticut was completed in Hartford in 1879. The city was hit by a wildfire, Hartford Circus Fire, in 1944. After World War II, many people moved from Puerto Rico to Hartford. Suburban growth led to a prolonged downturn in Hartford.

The Constitution Plaza business center was inaugurated in 1964. Mortensen Riverfront Plaza, a city park landscape park, opened in 1999.
