In beautiful, coastal Connecticut, there are foreclosed homes available for as little as a song. There are many Colonial and modern homes with cute, country charm ranging from efficient 2-bedroom homes to sprawling 4-bedroomers. Both single and two-story homes are available, in both large cities, like Hartford, and small towns, like Bloomfield. Whether you're looking for move-in-ready or a fixer-upper, Connecticut foreclosures have got you covered.
Also known as The Constitution State, Connecticut was the 5th to become one of the United States back in 1788. This long history means there is a lot to see in Connecticut based on the history of the formation of the country and its laws. In Hartford, the state's capital, you can find the Connecticut Historical Society and visit the former home of Mark Twain. For history that's a little more artistic, Windsor boasts three art museums of different periods. With Long Island Sound as the state's southern border, there are also a variety of working and retired lighthouses to see. Finally, there is plenty of family fun to be had at the West Hartford's Adventure Rooms, Mashantucket's Luxury Lanes, Uncasville's Kids Quest and numerous parks and beaches.
Connecticut began as three different Puritan settlements, and for some decades suffered territorial disputes with the nearby colonies which would later become New York and Pennsylvania. In 1881 when Connecticut adopted a new constitution, it was one of the first states to put to paper official laws separating church and state. Various favorable conditions, such as population density and flat terrain, led to a railroad boom which saw 102 miles of operation tracks by 1840. However, railroad's supremacy in Connecticut declined quickly with the introduction of the automobile, a personal transport that numbered in the 100,000's by 1920. Large-scale manufacturing continues to be a booming industry in Connecticut, and was recently joined by digital media enterprises.
