Where is Hartford, Vermont, USA? 

Hartford is a New England town in Windsor County in the state of Vermont. The community was chartered by Governor Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire in 1761, and is named for Hartford, Connecticut.

The town is composed of five unincorporated villages: Hartford, Quechee, West Hartford, White River Junction and Wilder.

White River Junction is an unincorporated village and census-designated place (CDP) in the town of Hartford in Windsor County, Vermont, United States.

The village has long had a role in transportation, primarily as a railroad junction. From the arrival of the first railroads in the late 1840s until rail diminished in importance in the 1960s due to the Interstate Highway System, White River Junction was the most important railroad community in Vermont. Its original importance was due to its location at the confluence of the White River with the Connecticut River. In 1803 Elias Lyman built a bridge across the Connecticut from the north bank of the White River to West Lebanon, New Hampshire.Wikipedia
