West Hartford
In 1672-1677 Hartford created the West Division by sub-dividing a tract bounded by Quaker Lane, Mountain Road, and the towns of Bloomfield and Newington. Later this was enlarged by lands from Hartford and Farmington. Our first settler, Stephen Hosmer, in 1679 built a mill on Trout Brook west of North Main Street. The West Division became a parish in 1711. The State Legislature named it West Hartford in 1806, and in 1854 made it a town. In 1919 West Hartford became the first place in Connecticut to adopt council-manager government. The birthplace of Noah Webster, compiler of the first American dictionary, is two miles down South Main Street.
