Historic Pratt Street in Hartford

By the mid-1800s Pratt Street was a fashionable residential address, home to many of the city’s wealthy merchants and bankers. During Mark Twin’s era, it was known as “Hartford’s Fifth Avenue.” With help from Aetna Insurance, in 1989 architect Smith Edwards of Hartford designed an authentic streetscape of granite, brick and ornamental lighting. This retro look was renovated and further improved in 2016. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Pratt Street is one of the classic streets in Hartford. A perfect home for Hartford’s best barbershop.
