About South Glastonbury Connecticut:
Glastonbury is the wealthiest town east of the Connecticut River (in terms of household income) in the state of Connecticut. Many estates are perched on hills with views of the Hartford skyline. Glastonbury has experienced continuous rapid growth since the 1950s, and was on the edge of Hartford's urban sprawl until the mid-1990s. By mid-1990s, growth moved beyond Glastonbury as the open land became sparse and the municipality began buying back land. Currently, most of the development are subdivisions of large homes on relatively small lots, and existing property has experienced a significant growth in real-estate values as the state of Connecticut began constructing a green belt, increasing the land shortage for metro Hartford.
