Celebrating Small Businesses in Our Community

For more than 30 years, The Hartford has specialized in small business insurance. We understand small businesses and recognize how critical they are to the success of their communities.

That's why we are always finding new ways to support small businesses above and beyond their insurance policy. Recently, we partnered with several local artists to create murals promoting small businesses in their communities, and heard more about some of their local favorite hotspots.
