HARTFORD, Conn. – By the end of today the Old State House on Main Street in Hartford will close its doors to the public.

The building, which for 83 years housed Connecticut’s government, fell victim to the state’s budget woes and took those who maintain it by surprise.

Up until the General Assembly adopted the budget in mid-May, the Old State House had been run by the Office of Legislative Management, which contracted with the Connecticut Public Affairs Network to provide educational programming.

    What a shame. Beautiful building and such an important part of our heritage. I hope it will at least be well preserved so that it can be reopened some time in the future.
