Rising above Hartford, Talcott Mountain and the rocky ridges north and south of it are prominent features protruding above the more gentle Connecticut River Valley landscape to the east. While similar to its mountainous neighbors, Talcott also stands apart thanks to the 165-foot Heublein Tower that sits upon its summit. Built in 1914 by Hartford resident, German-born hotelier and restaurateur Gilbert Heublein, the tower provides one of the finest views in the Nutmeg State.
