Harwinton is a wonderful town to raise a family in. Harwinton a community you want to be a part of. From local events, to very little increase in taxes despite the conditions of the economy over the last few years, Harwinton is a great place to live! Our first Selectman of many years now, Mike Criss, does a great job year after of keeping Harwinton special. I am proud to call Harwinton my home.
Beautiful area. Easy access to larger cities. Diversity is very low and many people are very unwilling to interact with people of color or others that have different backgrounds. Schools are good academically, but many teachers need cultural sensitivity training.
I moved to Harwinton 8 months ago and I am impressed. For such a small rural town they have amazing community involvement. My experience with HCS primary school is wonderful. They have an active PTO with parents that truly care. The teachers and staff at the school have been delightful as well as excellent at providing education. There are a few restaurants in town but not much else for night life. The location is great because we are moments from the highway and can get to a larger town within 5 minutes. Overall, we are thrilled that we moved here and would recommend it to everyone.
