Happy Birthday Connecticut’s Old State House
Wish a very happy birthday to something important – Connecticut’s Old State House! On May 13, 1796, Connecticut’s Legislature held their first session in their newly-constructed Hartford State House, and it has become the day that we celebrate this important building. Connecticut’s Old State House is iconic in the City of Hartford and one of the first buildings to be named a National Historic Landmark in December, 1960.
Throughout the years, this building has been threatened with destruction, but we’re celebrating its 227-year survival and important connections to history during our birthday celebration.
Connecticut’s Old State House will be open from 12-4 pm with FREE admission, a concert on our lawn, birthday cake from the 2022 Election Cake Contest winner Sweets by Jenna, and a Spring Market featuring Connecticut-made vendors and crafters.
Happy Birthday Connecticut’s Old State House is sponsored by Crosskey Architects, LaRosa Building Group, and Pullman and Comley.
