Bolton's rural character, easy access to Hartford, strong school system and beautiful countryside make it an appealing place to live. Continuing growth will put pressure on the finite number of open lands remaining, and the Bolton Land Trust wants to help balance growth with preservation by offering landowners creative, cooperative, market-based solutions which honor the personal, family and financial goals of donors and sellers.
