Buildings are touchstones that remind us of our lives, our family and friends, and the community that we call "home." For the people of Greater Hartford, The Bushnell is one of those special buildings – a landmark which provides a unique "sense of place."

Designed by the highly respected architectural firm of Corbett, Harrison, and MacMurray- the same architects responsible for New York City's Radio City-The Bushnell is regarded as a world-class facility and one of the great Halls of America.
