Hartford Houses Of Worship: Albany Ave

What day better than the day after Easter to debut Sad City's latest Hartford project, the Hartford Houses of Worship.  Places of worship come in all shapes and sizes and probably more so in an old New England city where some churches date back a hundred plus years.  Hartford is no exception, having what we would guess is a couple hundred houses of worship coming in all shapes and sizes. For our first edition we took a selection of houses of worship photographed on a sunny afternoon stroll down Albany Ave. This is in no way comprehensive, as there are just too many to expect to get them all.


  1. praise JESUS - AMEN -brother- SAVE US messiah -

  2. I attended this beautiful church, formerly known as the Horace Bushnell Congregational Church, from the age of 9 until I was married there in July 1962 at the age of 19. I also sang alto in its church choir. At that time, it had a wonderful pipe organ which resonated throughout the building. At one time, an old brick structure served as a Bible school. This was later replaced by a modern addition for fellowship purposes; and the remaining part of the property had senior citizen housing built next door where my husband's grandmother had a comfortable place to live.
