Community & Shopping


While Hartford offers all the amenities of a large community, it has maintained a friendly, small town appeal. Whether visiting for a day or staying for a lifetime, people of all ages will find a special piece of the community to fall in love within Hartford.

While strolling through downtown, you’ll admire the historical ambiance of the classically designed streetlights and benches, as well as the peaceful fountains, millpond and waterfall just east of Main Street.

Shopping opportunities continue as you travel through town. Stores and restaurants line Highway 60 (Sumner Street) east and west and provide easy access to housewares, clothing and resale shops, and other specialty goods and services. State Highway 83, just south of Downtown Main Street, offers an old-fashioned fresh frozen custard stand, movie theater, hardware store and more.
