Hartford CT Senior Living
Hartford, one of the oldest cities in the United States, is home to museums, theaters and historic sites. One of the nation’s greatest thinkers, Mark Twain, spent much of his time here – so why not retire here yourself?
Seniors looking to spend their retirement years appreciating the arts will love living in Hartford. The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art is the oldest art museum in the U.S. and is right in downtown Hartford. For live performances, the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts is a great choice and is where the Hartford Symphony Orchestra performs. For other concerts, you can take in shows at the Comcast Theater or the XL Center. For theatrical performances, you can’t do better than Hartford Stage, which puts on classic shows along with developing new plays.
Hartford is a town that values education. There are several higher learning institutions in the area. Nothing is more impressive than the Hartford Public Library which was built in 1774 and has more than 500,000 items available. Booklovers will definitely feel at home here.
Founded in 1637, Hartford is nearly 400 years old and has many historical sites to visit. A place of great history is the Mark Twain house—the author’s former residence now houses a museum. Built in 1796, the Old State House is one of the oldest remaining in the nation and was home to the Amistad trial.
