Trip Planner USA  /  Connecticut  /  Glastonbury
Glastonbury is a town in Hartford County, Connecticut, United States, founded in 1693. The population was 34,427 at the 2010 census. The town was named after Glastonbury in Somerset, England. Glastonbury is located on the banks of the Connecticut River, 7mi southeast of Hartford. The town center is defined by the U.S. Census Bureau as a census-designated place (CDP).Geography and ClimateAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 135.2km2, of which 132.8km2 is land and 2.4km2, or 1.76%, is water. The Glastonbury Center CDP has a total area of 12.7km2, of which 3.30% is water.The town begins on the banks of the Connecticut River and extends up into foothills, many of which provide a view of Hartford's skyline. Some major developments in the town are built entirely on relatively steep hills, such as "Minnechaug Mountain", the major residential area developed from the 1970s until late '90s.Part of Glastonbury resides in an area called "Kongscut Mountain", locally called "Rattlesnake Mountain", because it has a small population of timber rattlesnakes. Since that area is sparsely developed and mostly in a state forest, the snakes don't pose much of a threat.
