Rolling farm fields to the north and west, kettle moraine to the south and east, Pike Lake State Park in its back yard … put a charming downtown in the center, surround it with small town older neighborhoods, add new development all around built mostly in the early 2000’s and you have a recipe for a place called Hartford. Oh, we forgot to add the seasoning! Hartford offers a list of amenities that will surprise you. The Schauer Theater home to great local plays, the Aquatic Center, the Wisconsin Automotive Museum, the Chandelier Ballroom, the beautiful public library and of course The Mineshaft – touted as Wisconsin’s largest restaurant. Need we say more about what makes Hartford an appealing place to live? The city also offers more than its fair share of commercial and light manufacturing jobs and is located just on the fringe on what still works as a daily commute to the Milwaukee area.
