City of New Britain Celebrates 150 Years of Incorporation with Sesquicentennial Events New Britain, CT – Mayor Erin Stewart announced today that 2021 marks 150 years since the City of New Britain became an incorporated city. New Britain was incorporated as a town in 1850, however due to the influx of those relocating for opportunity and to build a future, a public meeting was held on January 13, 1871 where it was approved to officially incorporate as a City. In honor of this momentous occasion, a year-long sesquicentennial celebration will take place that will include many special events and commemorations recognizing New Britain’s tremendous industry, history, and cultural diversity. The City hosted a similar celebration back in 2000, but that was to commemorate the New Britain being incorporated as a town in 1850. This celebration acknowledges New Britain’s incorporation as a city in 1871. “New Britain has such a rich history, and I am excited to celebrate this significant anniversary with the residents, businesses, and organizations that make this city great,” said Mayor Erin Stewart. “Over the last 150 years the City has evolved tremendously, but has remained steadfast in our resolve to be innovative and successful in providing residents with a wonderful place to work, live, and raise a family.” New Britain was originally an agricultural village mostly centered around Hart Quarter, Stanley Quarter, and East Street. As time went on and the population grew, it transformed into a community founded on a booming manufacturing industry. Companies such as Stanley Works, P&F Corbin Company, Landers, Frary & Clark (LF&C) and North & Judd were headquartered in the city. Today New Britain is home to companies from a variety of industries and a leader in modern, technologically advanced, and energy efficient initiatives that strive to improve the quality of life for all residents. Increases in economic development surrounding the City’s CTFastrak stations have helped add to its thriving community.
