Bloomfield, Connecticut

Located in north central Connecticut as part of Hartford Country, Bloomfield was settled in 1640 and incorporated in 1835. Bloomfield was named an "All-American City" in 1973, an award that recognized Bloomfield’s success as an ethnically and culturally diverse community. According to the 2000 Census the population in Bloomfield is estimated at 19,587.  Currently, Bloomfield's top employers are Connecticut General Corporation (Connecticut General Life Insurance Company), Kaman Aerospace Corporation, Pratt & Whitney, and Cigna Investments.

After Bloomfield was incorporated, it began to diversify its economic base with tobacco crops, cider mills, and a brandy distillery was also built. Prior to the advent of the automobile, growth in Bloomfield was concentrated in the area near the rail, trolley, or bus lines.  However, by the 1950s this changed dramatically.  Construction of interstate highway Route 91 made travel from Windsor and downtown Hartford to Bloomfield easy and, as a result, folks relocated to the suburbs. Between 1950 and 1970, Hartford’s population declined, while the populations of six suburbs surrounding Hartford increased. Accordingly, Bloomfield’s 220% growth rate topped all the other suburban towns, which resulted in extensive housing development.  The housing development "boom" provided the impetus for economic expansion and, in turn, industrial growth for the town. This expansion lasted through the 1970s.

Asbestos exposure in the workplace has been an issue in Bloomfield.  Workers in Bloomfield who believe they have been exposed to asbestos containing products may be at risk to develop mesothelioma cancer, a type of asbestos disease. We provide information about treatment for mesothelioma in and around Bloomfield at the bottom of this page.  This asbestos related cancer affects over 3000 people every year in the United States.
