What is the Hartford Heritage Project?
The Hartford Heritage Project makes Hartford’s rich and diverse cultural institutions, landmarks, and neighborhoods an extension of our classroom. Hartford Heritage courses make connections between course content and the city of Hartford in order to enhance learning and to increase our understanding of Connecticut’s capital city.
