I love the architecture of the state house in Hartford CT. We were here on a Sunday so we were able to park anywhere and take a few photos. Gorgeous building and nice park nearby! #hartford #roadtrip #connecticut #capitolbuilding #statehouse Competed in 1878 using native granite and using the High Victorian Gothic Style this is the Connecticut State Capitol building. Nice when the city quiets down a little. This was after a 5k race, when everyone starting to trickle away from the festivities and head home. A lovely run, and beautiful evening. Located in the rotunda this statue is named Genius of Connecticut. The original was located on the Capitol dome. It was removed in the 1930's after being damaged in a hurricane and was eventually donated to the war effort in the 1940's. This one was authentically rebuilt and will eventually take her place on the dome once funding is found. Had a wonderful visit at the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, Connecticut.
It is the only private residence decorating Louis Comfort Tiffany. Twain wrote Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn in upstairs Billiard Room. Twain's writings captivated the American public attention for several decades and his writings are great representation of issues in America in post Civil War to early 20th century. There be but one track at this station. Its the most beautiful architecture i have seen. Couldnt get in cuz it was open till 5 ☹️️ I always look for Skyline shots on my trips and this location was quite nice for the shot. I took another closer to the water. Underneath that blue dome lies the east armory of a factory once owned by a man who changed American history, the innovator of the revolver, Samuel Colt. Sprawling around the crumbling red brickwork of the old Colt’s Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company, once the largest private armory in the world, are the remnants of Coltsville, the utopian village he built for his workers.
A model of 19th century industrial paternalism, Coltsville included a church, a social hall for dances and lectures, workers’ housing, a giant landscaped park home to deer and peacocks, sculpted botanical gardens, and thousands of feet of greenhouses filled with tropical fruit and flowers. Samuel Colt felt such responsibility for the welfare of his workers outside the factory that he went so far as to build Potsdam Village, to replicate the feel of the German village from which he imported his skilled craftsmen to work in his willow ware factory.
The National Park Service began having on-site presence in 2015, with workshops and tours, including up into the Blue Onion Dome which affords magnificent views of downtown Hartford, the Connecticut River and Colt Park, formerly the back yard of Armsmear, Samuel & Elizabeth Colt’s mansion. By 2016, an NPS ranger had taken up residence in the South Armory and was giving walking tours of Coltsville.
The old South, East and North armories are under renovation and the two 1855 brownstone buildings, the oldest structures on site, will become the National Park Service Visitor Center. The armories themselves have been or are being renovated into apartments, offices and education facilities. State Capitol Building. It is a stunning building. Mark Twain's House, Hartford, CT. Apparently, Hartford was his favorite city!  Beautiful museum in downtown Hartford
