Today Bolton is a quiet residential community. Vistas of open meadows and rolling hills have been carefully preserved and create an ideal setting.
For most of its early history Bolton was primarily a busy industrial center. Gristmills, saw mills, cider mills and agriculture made up most of Bolton's early economy. Now, charming neighborhoods of traditional homes and fine old farmhouses dot the landscape.
The city of Hartford, a short distance away and nearby towns provide employment opportunities and cultural amenities.
Outdoor recreation activities are available all year. Beautiful town parks offer youth athletic leagues, playgrounds and tennis courts. Bolton Lake at Indian Notch Park is open during the summer months and has swimming, a picnic area and pavilion, baseball field and basketball court.

The educational climate index chart is based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s Socioeconomic Status (SES) measure. Factors in this measure are income, educational achievement and occupation of persons within a ZIP code. Because this measure is based on the population of an entire ZIP code, it may not reflect the nature of an individual school.
The temperature chart displays average high and low temperatures (degrees Fahrenheit) for the months of January and July.
The weather risk chart displays a percent value for a given type of weather risk as compared to the national average. A percent value greater than 100 indicates the area is more prone to risk than the national average; similarly, a value less than 100 indicates the area is less prone.
