About Rocky Hill
The first Europeans came here in the 1650s. Originally a part of Wethersfield, the town was incorporated in 1843. The town got its name from the trap rock ridge that rises in the northeast. Being located on the west bank of the Connecticut River, the town was a port of Wethersfield and an early shipbuilding center. Also, the town is an important trading point. The Rocky Hill-Glastonbury Ferry, one of the oldest continuously operating ferries in the state, was opened in 1655. Nowadays Rocky Hill is claimed as one of the best places to live in Connecticut. A huge amount of parks, restaurants, museums, and highly-rated schools make the town an attractive destination for tourists and people who’re tired of big cities.
