The City of Hartford, established in 1849, is a growing community where people are our most valued asset. We take pride in being a community where everyone is considered a neighbor.

We number over seven hundred citizens and we are located in central Iowa on Highway 5 approximately twelve miles from the southeast side of the Des Moines, Iowa metropolitan area.

Our community is served by several great businesses, organizations, and is also home to Carlisle Community School District’s upper elementary school. We have all the advantages of the bigger city with the benefits of a small community.

We encourage you to come and check out our community, or feel free to contact any one of our departments or city leaders with any questions you may have.
