Glastonbury, CT —
The perfect blend of both historic beauty and modern convenience

Glastonbury, Connecticut is a town with the perfect blend of both historic beauty and modern convenience. We are fortunate to have The Historical Society of Glastonbury which informs residents and visitors alike about our rich history at the Museum on the Green, as well as through educational and promotional events such as the Bread and Beer Demonstration and the Walking Tours. Did you know Glastonbury is the Connecticut town with the largest inventory of Colonial homes? We also are proud to have the oldest continuous operating ferry in the country, dating back to 1655. The Ferry Landing is my favorite place to park the car, and take a walk past sunflowers, tobacco barns, and working farms.

"Any time you are near the river, there is always the chance to spot a Bald Eagle flying overhead."

When I first moved to Glastonbury over 30 years ago, I learned about the long history of industry, much of which was tied to being located on the Connecticut River. In 1840, James B. Williams and his brother took over the Hubbard's Grist Mill in order to manufacture shaving soap, at what is believed to be the first commercial soap manufacturing business in the world. The soap factory is now one of the town's most popular condominium complexes, and this was my first home when I moved to Glastonbury as a newlywed. We fell in love with original brick walls, wooden beams, and were lucky that our condo unit overlooked the peaceful waterfall, the mill pond and dam. As an avid cyclist, my husband loved road rides around the back roads of town, and mountain biking through the trails in town parks like J.B. Williams Park, which was named after the factory owner.

Education has always been one of the many things that attracts new residents to Glastonbury. During the Revolutionary War, Yale University held classes in several homes and one of the most famous students was Noah Webster, who later taught at one of Glastonbury's one-room schoolhouses. Glastonbury has three public libraries and an award-winning public-school system.
Centrally located about mid-way between Boston and New York City; less than half an hour from Bradley International Airport; minutes from both Route 91 and Route 84 – Glastonbury is a perfect location to work, live and play.
