Even in the early days Hartland was a popular recreational site. A race track with a baseball diamond in its center was built in 1845. After horse races, the ball games between Hartland and neighboring towns drew as many as 10,000 people. Inns and resorts sprang up when the Watertown Plank Road (literally made from 10′ log planks) was built in 1846. The first Post Office was opened that same year with William Clark as Postmaster. After the railroad came in 1854 the village was given the name it still holds – Hartland, after the Indian word “Shabaquanake”. Hartland now offers top-rated schools, beautiful homes, fine churches, tree-lined streets, and spacious parks. The Bark River runs through the downtown adding charm. It is a full-service village offering the best in-home town amenities with metropolitan conveniences. Hartland provides full-time police, fire protection, and emergency medical services. Hartland has enjoyed steady growth for the past 20 years and it continues to grow at expected population projections.
