Glastonbury exudes New England charm with its scenic riverfront, colonial-era houses, rural privacy and commercial accessibility

Glastonbury, CT, situated on the east bank of the Connecticut River in Hartford County, sums up New England with its magnificent riverfront, rolling hills, lush woodlands, fertile farm fields and colonial-era homes, many dating back to the 17th century.

Named after Glastonbury in Somerset, England, this upscale community is deeply rooted in history. The town, settled in 1636 and incorporated in 1693, comprises several diverse communities, including Addison, Buckingham, East Glastonbury, Hopewell, South Glastonbury and Welles Village.

Glastonbury’s 52.2 square miles are home to approximately 34,500 residents. Many families have resided here for generations, while others seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city find the town to be the perfect place to set down roots.

The town has five distinct historic districts with homes going back as far as the 18th century, and its main historic district is located on the town green, as is the town’s historical society. During the Revolutionary War, Glastonbury produced gunpowder, and in the 18th and early 19th centuries it served as a major shipbuilding town.

Glastonbury also has the oldest continually operating ferry in the United States, which operates between South Glastonbury and Rocky Hill. The ferry is a popular 10-minute transport link for seven months out of the year.

Recreation enthusiasts will find no shortage of outdoor attractions. Glastonbury’s Riverfront Park, has myriad sports fields, a basketball court and separate areas for dog walkers, playgrounds, picnic areas, a sheltered pavilion and boat launch. Those who chase waterfalls are drawn to Blackledge Falls, with its 80 acres of woodland on the Glastonbury-Hebron town line. The locale is a natural wonder, with its cascading waterfalls accessed via a mile-long trail.

Family and friends enjoy Glastonbury’s seasonal festivals and events. A popular fall attraction is its annual, three-day Apple Harvest & Music Festival. There are also several popular orchards, wineries and berry farms situated throughout the town.

This combination of natural resources, recreational options, historic charm, rural privacy and commercial accessibility makes Glastonbury a much-sought community in which to reside.
