West Hartford Connecticut West Hartford, Noah Webster's hometown and a suburb of Connecticut's capital made the 2010 Kiplinger 10 Best Cities For the Next Decade. "It is on our list because it is transforming itself from a suburb into a destination -- in this case, a regional destination for shopping and dining". Education is West Hartford's hallmark, and schools -- both public and private -- are the biggest draw for newcomers to the town. The town was incorporated in 1854. Prior to that date, the town was a parish of Hartford. The town has a downtown area called "West Hartford Center". This area is centered around Farmington Avenue and South/North Main Street. West Hartford Center has been the community's hub since the late 17th century. According to the Historical Society, “In many ways, the history of West Hartford epitomizes the evolution of numerous towns across America. Founded predominantly by Protestants in the 1700s out of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, the small town remained rooted in agriculture into the early 1900s. At that time, the well-to-do from Hartford and later the largely white middle class moved away from city life to create one of the state capital's thriving suburbs.” According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 22.3 square miles (57.7 km2), of which 21.9 square miles (56.6 km2) is land and 0.42 square miles (1.1 km2), or 1.91%, is water. The west side of West Hartford is flanked by the Metacomet Ridge, a mountainous trap rock ridgeline that stretches from Long Island Sound to nearly the Vermont border. Notable features of the Metacomet Ridge in West Hartford include Talcott Mountain and a number of highland water reservoirs belonging to the Metropolitan District, which maintains watershed and recreation resources on the property. The 51-mile-long (82 km) Metacomet Trail traverses the ridge. The town's web site indicates that the highest point in town is 778 feet (237 m) above sea level on Talcott (Avon) Mountain. The altitude at Town Hall is 120 feet (37 m). West Hartford is adjacent to and west of Hartford, the state capital, and borders Bloomfield, Newington, Farmington, and Avon. West Hartford is approximately 100 miles (160 km) southwest of Boston and 120 miles (190 km) northeast of New York City. Interstate 84 runs through West Hartford.
