Welcome to Connecticut’s Old State House: the place where history and civics meet!
Located in the heart of Hartford, this building served as a home to all three branches of state government from 1796 to 1878. Some of our state’s most important stories of freedom, democracy, and civic action, from the Amistad trial to Prudence Crandall, to the landmark Constitutional Convention of 1818, connect to this National Historic Landmark.
Today, Connecticut’s Old State House serves as a history museum, gathering spot, and place of civic exploration for thousands of local, national, and international visitors each year. It is also the Greater Hartford Information Center, the perfect place to begin your visit to the Hartford area.
