Planning a move to Enfield?

Enfield, CT is a small town of just 45,212 residents located in Hartford County, Connecticut. While it may be small, it has a lot going for it. The city has a rich history dating back to colonial times, is the home of some big name companies, and is in a great location. Whatever your reason for relocating to Enfield, this guide can help you learn more about your new city and how to move there for an affordable price.

What you need to know when moving to Enfield

It snows…a lot. You’ll definitely want to invest in a snow shovel immediately after you move to Enfield as the city gets 49 inches per year! 49 inches might not seem like a lot, especially considering that Syracuse, NY gets 126 inches per year, but the U.S. averages about 25 inches of snow per year, so you’ll be getting double the average of the entire United States. Get ready for some winter fun and lots of snowman building with the family.

It’s close to a lot of different places. New York City is 3 hours away, Boston is two hours away, Hartford (Connecticut’s state capital) is 30 minutes away, and Springfield is 20 minutes away.

It’s full of history. The town was named and incorporated by the Colony of Massachusetts in 1683 and became part of Connecticut in 1749. Jonathan Edwards, a Christian preacher, gave his famous sermon titled “Sinners at the Hands of an Angry God” while in Enfield. His message was part of the Great Awakening revival that spread like wildfire in the mid-18th century.

It’s a great place for business. The town of Enfield is home to several major employers: Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company, Hallmark Cards, Precision Camera, CUNO Incorporated, Retail Brand Alliance, Lego Systems Incorporated, and The Connecticut Department of Corrections, Martin Brower, and Specialized Technology Resources Incorporated. Together, these companies make up almost 25% of the total employment in Enfield. Agriculture, retail, and tourism also play a role in Enfield’s economy.

Did you know? Enfield is 10 minutes away from the Basketball Hall of Fame and just an hour away from ESPN headquarters? If you’re a sports fan, you’re going to love moving to Enfield.

You can always find cheap gas. Because Enfield is right on the Connecticut-Massachusetts state line, gas prices can differ up to 30 cents per gallon between the two states.

There are many neighborhoods in Enfield to choose from. After moving to Enfield, you may want to settle into Enfield Historic District, Hazardville, North Thompsonville, Presidential section, Scitico, Shaker Pines, Sherwood Manor, Southwood Acres, or Thompsonville.

There are plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors. Brainerd Park, Green Manor Recreational Area, Hazardville Park, Mark Twain Recreational Area, and Scantic River Skate Park are some great places to enjoy an afternoon canoeing, fishing, playing tennis or basketball, picnicking, or swinging on the swing set.

You can get an education there. Enfield Public Schools educates school-aged children in the city. There is one high school, one middle school, and nine elementary schools. For higher education, Asnuntuck Community College serves the city.

Did you know? The Bigelow Commons, an apartment complex, was once an old carpet factory called Bigelow-Sanford Carpet Co that was operating around the start of 1990. Years after the factory shut down, the city converted the buildings in to apartment buildings. The Bigelow Commons is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

There are plenty of fun things to do just outside of Enfield!
