Asylum Hill has the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center and the Mark Twain House, but it also has countless other sites to see, each offering its own unique contribution to Hartford and, in some cases, the country. From houses to churches, Asylum Hill has a remarkable collection of grand architecture and offbeat nooks that you won't believe you've driven by for years without noticing.|
Every summer, NINA partners with Aetna and The Hartford to offer weekly walking tours for the employees of these companies as well as the general public. Participants on the Asylum Hill Walking Tours are greeted by a community stakeholder (a resident or someone very active in Asylum Hill) who conveys them to their guide for the week. Every week participants gain new knowledge and insights into Asylum Hill, and we hope you'll participate. The Summer Walking Tour series for 2015 has concluded, but we'll be gearing up soon for 2016.
