Welcome to the West End Civic Association
The West End is a community that includes: homeowners, renters, local businesses and neighborhood nonprofit organizations. The West End Civic Association (WECA) is a neighborhood organization whose mission is to encourage and assist all community members to be good neighbors. WECA works to enhance the safety, quality of life and well-being of its residents. WECA promotes safe and beautiful streets, desirable housing, excellent schools, cultural and social events, historic preservation, and a thriving business corridor for the benefit of all community members.
The West End, located 1.5 miles from the center of Hartford, is home to a diverse population, fine owned and rental homes, a retail business center, several institutions, and one of the finest parks in the City. Among its special places are the Governor’s Mansion, Hartford Seminary recognized nationally for both its program and architecture, the University of Connecticut Law School, Hartford College for Women now associated with the University of Hartford, and the Connecticut Historical Society. Next door are the Mark Twain House, the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, and the headquarters of several major insurance companies. Clemens Place, located on Farmington Avenue, is the largest historic apartment renovation ever undertaken in New England.
