Learn about Hartford’s Victorian heyday on this new walking tour of Cedar Hill Cemetery.
Hartford was the center of the insurance industry and housed innovative factories making it a regional leader during the Industrial Revolution. It was also home to the U. S.’s first public art museum, oldest publicly-funded park, and second-oldest secondary school. All reflect the capital city’s 19th-century grandeur.
The walking tour begins at the flagpole at the end of the entrance drive.
