Bloomfield

town (township), Hartford county, north-central Connecticut, U.S., just northwest of Hartford. The site, drained by Wash Brook and the Farmington River, was settled about 1660, and the parish of Wintonbury was organized in 1736 from parts of Windsor, Farmington, and Simsbury. In 1835 Wintonbury was renamed Bloomfield, possibly for a Hartford family, and was incorporated as a town. Until industries developed in the late 1940s, the town was essentially a residential and farming community. Manufactures now include tools, aerospace products, and electronics. The Bloomfield Farm Implement Museum is housed in a former tobacco barn. Area 26 square miles (67 square km). Pop. (1990) 19,483; (2000) 19,587.
