Hartford is home to many historical places and traditional architecture styles. For those who love literature or simply take pride in our country, the Mark Twain House and Museum is open to the public and shines a new light on his work. The Elizabeth Park and Rose Garden is a great place for a picnic or a relaxing walk. Honoring those who served in the American Civil War, the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch was the very first triumphal arch in the US. Hartford is also home to the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the oldest art museum in the nation.
