Inspired by the Fair Housing Tour created by the Fair Housing Council of OregonThe Fair Housing Tour of Hartford takes passengers throughout the city’s various neighborhoods and offers information about the effects of redlining and housing discrimination, builds understanding of the ways in which low-income communities of color were denied housing or forced to live in substandard conditions, and shows how patterns of segregation developed in the city.

The Center offers the tour to private groups on a limited basis. Contact us to learn about scheduling a fair housing tour for your group or organization.

This project made possible by funding from The Harford Foundation for Public Giving and incredible support from the Hartford History Center.
