General History

The Boulevard-Raymond Road Historic District area was part of a large dairy farm owned by Henry A King. In 1896 Frederick C Rockwell, a young entrepreneur, bought the farm and began to carry out his ambitious plans for one of the first modern subdivisions and real estate development in town. Rockwell envisioned a grand boulevard from West Hartford to Hartford with a wide-like park median large enough for a trolley line bordered by trees. His plan was disrupted by the Hartford Street railway. which was already operating a trolley line from West Hartford Center to Hartford and made the connection with the Unionville line before Rockwell had the chance. The Boulevard median between the South Main Street and Raymond Road was the only portion realized and today forms the centerpiece of the district.
