The Hartford Mission will be holding an event on January 21st to help people improve their relationships. In itself, this is not newsworthy, but the address on this poster is brand new, and that is newsworthy.
This is the former location of the Hartford Mission – 779 Farmington Avenue, West Hartford, CT, a residential style building on a main street not too far from the center of Hartford.
This is the new location – 46 High Street, Collinsville, CT. It’s still a nice looking house, but Collinsville is a town of less than 4,000 people. It is 13 miles further from Hartford than the old mission, and it’s on an unpaved back road. We suspect hard times may have fallen on the mission holders, leading them to pull up roots and move to the country.
