Historic Charter Oak Tree – Connecticut Photo Journal


Wordless Wednesday

Scion from the original historic Charter Oak tree planted in 1871 by the Governor’s Foot Guard in Bushnell Park in Hartford, Connecticut.

While strolling on a walking tour in Bushnell Park, Hartford Connecticut I came across this beautiful historic oak tree from colonial days. I was thankful it didn’t get damaged during our two recent storms, Irene in August and Alfred in October, 2011.

  1. Thanks for sharing this amazing pic. By seeing this Oak tree, I felt nostalgic as I recollected the view of an old neem tree near our old house. Unfortunately, as it was outgrowing and there was a danger of it falling on our house, it was cut. To fill the space, I planted a new tree near the same place.

  2. Hey Cindi,

    I’m sure that Charter Oak tree planted in 1871 will stay there for another century or more :) I think there were many more storms in those 140 years since it was planted.

  3. A part of history sure to stand many many more years.

  4. That’s really cool that the tree has been there that long and has withstood all of the recent crazy weather. I love history like that.
