Where is Bloomfield, Connecticut, USA? 

Bloomfield, in Hartford County, is located in the northern portion of central Connecticut. Its border is formed on the north by the Farmington River and on the west by Talcott Mountain. Originally land of the Poquonocks, the area was first settled in 1660 as part of Windsor, organized as the Parish of Wintonbury in 1736 from the towns of Windsor, Farmington, and Simsbury, and finally incorporated as the town of Bloomfield in May of 1835. The early economy of Bloomfield was agriculturally based, mostly in shade tobacco, until it became a densely populated suburb of Hartford, as it remains to this day.connecticuthistory.org/ towns-page/ bloomfield/
