The Roundup has put together a special section called Discover Burlington! It highlights the history of Burlington and what it has to offer now.
Burlington is situated at the foot of the Berkshires and bordering the Farmington River, Burlington is a scenic hill town, rural in nature, located 20 miles west of Hartford. Incorporated in 1806, Burlington is home to the State of Connecticut Fish Hatchery, the Nepaug Reservoir and Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area.
Almost half of the land in the town is owned by three public water supply companies and the State of Connecticut.
The town was once part of larger Farmington Plantation. In 1785, it split away and became a part of the town of Bristol. In 1806, Burlington separated from Bristol and became a town in its own right.
