Citizens of Hartford Michigan                                            

Hartford, Michigan,
located in Van Buren County, is a small hometown community, nestled in a variety of agricultural farms and several lakes within a few miles. With direct access to I-94, it's only a short drive to the big cities for colleges, universities, entertainment and shopping malls – just 20 minutes from  Benton Harbor and St. Joseph, 40 minutes to Kalamazoo.  And…. we're only 1 1/2 hours from Chicago and about 3 hours to Detroit.  After a busy day in the city, return home to a serene countryside of horses, pole barns, luscious blueberries and strawberries, fruit orchards, vegetable fields, and awesome seasonal views from atop of historic Webster Hills. Chicagoans have long been known to escape the stresses of city life by locating their summer homes in the township or on one of several lovely area lakes.  Housing is affordable and city amenities are nearby.  CSX Railroad runs through our community, with an AMTRAK depot stop located about 10 miles north of Hartford in Bangor.  We are fortunate to have DSL high speed internet service available.  A cell tower, located along I-94, connects Hartford to the world of cellular wireless phone service.

Hartford isn't a highly cultural or architecturally "beautiful" community, but it is a good place to raise a family and we are blessed with a special
hometown spirit that city folk often dream about.  Hartford graduates have gone forward to become innovative leaders, not only in our community, but have excelled around the world in education, military, religious, government, etc. We love our kids, churches, schools – clearly evident as everybody packs into the football stadium for Friday night football games to cheer our awesome Hartford Indians to victory.
