Bloomfield is a town in Hartford County, Connecticut, United States. The population was 20,486 at the 2010 census.HistoryOriginally land of the Poquonocks, the area was first settled in 1660 as part of Windsor, organized as the Parish of Wintonbury in 1736. Wintonbury comes from three names from neighboring towns Windsor, Farmington, and Simsbury. It was 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.GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 68.0km2, of which 67.6km2 is land and 0.4sqkm, or 0.63%, is water.Bloomfield is bordered by Windsor to the northeast, East Granby to the north, Simsbury and Avon to the west, and West Hartford and Hartford to the south.The northern border of Bloomfield is formed by the Farmington River. The west side of the town is flanked by Talcott Mountain, part of the Metacomet Ridge, a mountainous trap rock ridgeline that stretches from Long Island Sound to nearly the Vermont border. Notable features of the Metacomet Ridge in Bloomfield include Penwood State Park and the Tariffville Gorge of the Farmington River, on the borders of East Granby, Simsbury, and Bloomfield. The 51mi Metacomet Trail traverses the ridge.
