Hartford

The Travelers Tower

The Travelers Tower is the tallest observation point in Hartford, located Between Main and Prospect streets, right next to the Old State House. This Travelers Insurance Company Tower is situated on the spot where there was once a tavern.

The Travelers Company was founded in 1863 by James Goodwin Batterson while its tower was completed under the direction of New York City architect, Donn Barber in the year 1919. At that time it was the tallest structure of the area. Today, though it did not remain the tallest structure but is still notable as one of best landmarks of the city attracting thousands of visitors with its amazing architectural splendor.
