Hartford, Ohio


Perhaps best known for “The Biggest Little Fair in the World,” Hartford is a country escape just a jaunt away from the city.

One evening at the fair is all it takes to experience a little bit of everything Licking County has to offer: Camaraderie, home cooking and some friendly competition.


Any other time of year, hop onto the country road and prepare to breathe in the open air as you take in panoramic views of the simple life: Vast sky, farmers’ fields and maybe a cow or three. Named after the town of Hartford, Connecticut, this village boasts tight-knit eastern roots situated under the boundless central Ohio sky.
