Moving closer to a Coltsville Park, Hartford

Apr 4th, 2014 | By | Category: General

Ed Note: I’m not sure if this is a decade-long effort, or a decade-old effort. I don’t know that much effort has been expended to make this a national park since the effort was announced more than a decade ago. 

The decade-long effort to build a national park on the site of Coltsville – gunmaker and inventor Sam Colt’s showcase industrial village along the Connecticut River in Hartford – took a major step forward last week.

The Congressional Budget Office put a price tag on getting the project started – $9 million to restore and develop the surviving buildings – along with a management plan for the park. A House vote should follow, and approval is expected.
