This Historic Sites and Structures Survey (HSSS) was undertaken by the Town of Hartford and its Historic Preservation Commission as a Phase II following an earlier Phase I survey.

Phase I of the HSSS was completed in 2013 and included surveys of structures constructed between the late 1700s into the 1920s.

Phase II has picked up where Phase I left off surveyed structures constructed between the 1920s and 1960s.
