I'll admit it flat out. It needs work. The HartfordHistory.net News Blog has only posted once since November 2012. The posts have to be more frequent to convince me to read the blog on a regular basis. But that's the bad side.
Fortunately, there's a lot more good than bad. The blog covers history related news in Hartford. Some of it is only of use if you're local, such as the tour referenced in an August 17, 2012 post. A bit of it has national interest, such as the campaign to have the Harriet Beecher Stowe house listed on the National Historic Register. If nothing else, the topics should give you a quick introduction to Hartford's history: Constitution Plaza, anyone?
