“Community is a sign that love is possible in a materialistic world where people so often either ignore or fight each other. It is a sign that we don't need a lot of money to be happy--in fact, the opposite.” - Jean Vanier
Welcome to Hartford Township!
We are a humble rural community with a friendly welcome for all and high expectations for the future. Whether you are new to our community or an old friend we invite you to browse our website to get a glimpse of what we have to offer.
We also welcome you to watch our progress. We are currently in the process of planning the update of our Township Hall, which was built in 1978 and has served us well. We expect to have our new “look” completed in early fall. Please check back as we update our progress.
