What Bert Has To Say About Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford Metro Area


As a state capital and center for the insurance industry, Hartford has a long and colorful history as a colonial center and prosperous industrial-era city. The first insurance company was established here in the late 1700’s, and The Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company, established in 1866, charted the course for industrial safety. Today Hartford is home to 35 insurance companies, including AETNA and The Hartford, which provide stable employment. The area is also headquarters to conglomerate United Technologies but most manufacturing has disappeared from the Hartford landscape and it has become a center for “knowledge” industries.
