In short, I was impressed by what I saw of Hartford! Immediately upon arriving in the city at about 5:45 PM on a Monday night, I took a stroll downtown on a beautiful sunny June day. The first really impressive building that I came across was the Center Church, built in 1802 to replace an earlier structure that had been erected in 1637.
