Welcome to a community that touts small town. Friendliness with big city benefits.
The Village of Hartford has the advantage of being a small town, surrounded by a big city. Its a place where you feel safe and know your neighbors. Located 20 minutes from downtown St. Louis Missouri. St. Louis is the 14th largest labor market in the country. Hartford enjoys a productive labor force ready to get the job done, along with a pro-business community.
Big city benefits continue with the resources of the Growth Association of Southwestern Illinois , an economic development association working to lend expertise, contacts, and know-how. The village also enjoys forward thinking officials who have recently adopted a tax increment financing district and readily invite additions to the existing enterprise zone. A community providing a home not just a place to be for your business.
Available Commercial Sites The space available is a prime location for many types of businesses. Located along a main transportation corridor between Illinois and Missouri, thousands of motorists use this passage to travel to and from work everyday. Since many of the conveniences that people use on a daily basis are "out of the way", we see this stretch of commercial space as an opportunity to provide those essential conveniences for everyone! Here is a list of just a few of the types of businesses that can benefit from locating at the Lewis and Clark Commerce Center.

The Lewis and Clark Commerce Center is already a great place with Midwest Motor sports, Colman's Country Campers, Piasa Pantry, Schiber Truck Co. and Piasa Motor Fuels.
