Vernon Connecticut was a part of the Town of Bolton until 1808. This explains why the two lakes which expanse are mostly in Vernon are called Middle Bolton Lake and Upper Bolton Lake. In 1965, the City of Rockville and the Town of Vernon were consolidated into a single township. The Rockville area gives the town the city setting and subsequently, the rural feel is exuded by the areas which used to be part of Bolton.
Vernon is a diversified town located in Tolland County and 15 minutes east of Hartford. New England Civil War Museum is just one of Vernon’s points of interest. Recreation parks and lakes can be found in this 18.03-mile community. Vernon provides easy access to I-84 and other major routes to Massachusetts and New York.
“With its easy access to several state routes as well as Interstate 84, Vernon provides homeowners the opportunity to enjoy suburbia, while enjoying a short commute to either Hartford or Springfield business districts.” Know more about the Town of Vernon CT.
