Compare Multiple Neighborhoods

Hartford is located at the western most edge of the city. It is bordered by the neighborhoods of Silver Lake to the south, Olneyville to the east, Manton to the northeast, and the town of Johnston to the west and north. Route 6 and the Woonasquatucket River are the major boundaries between Hartford and Olneyville. Originally a farming community along the western edge of the city, Hartford became increasingly industrial and residential because of its proximity to rivers throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It was the area of settlement for many Polish and Italian immigrants in the beginning of the 1900s, which led to the construction of several housing projects that have since been demolished.
