The Jewish Historical Society has transformed its popular bus tour of Hartford, using an online “story map.” Click here to go to the map; you can scroll through the left-hand column to explore the city’s Jewish history, or click on a point on the map to learn more. The online map draws upon historic images, reminiscences, and artifacts in our collection to highlight the building of Jewish communities in the city, in downtown, the East Side to the North End and beyond.

We are grateful for support from Connecticut Humanities which made this project possible.
