Who is Kilkenney?

by balancedrob

Hello,
I am a resident of West Hartford(Lower Bentwood Road) and I am a frequent visitor to Kilkenney Rock in the Reservoir. I've been hiking and running it for years, but I have no knowledge of why the rock is named what it is.
My searches have not yielded much other than there is a great cream ale named Kilkenney made by Guinness. Any info you can furnish for me would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Rob Mullins

Re: Who is Kilkenney?

by qaminari

I read that 15% of West Hartford residents claim Irish descent. Might it not therefore be named after the PLACE (more usually "Kilkenny") in Ireland, rather than a person? See, for example, http://www.amphilsoc.org/library/exhibits/wallace/immigrants.htm

Travel Tips for West Hartford

Heublein Tower

by redhat333

The familiar Farmington River Valley landmark of Heublein Tower sits atop Talcott Mountain, a long, precipitous wooded ledge named after Revolutionary War hero John Talcott. The 165-foot structure was built as a summer home in 1914 by Gilbert Heublein. In the early fifties, two future presidents were guests of the Hartford Times, then General Dwight D. Eisenhower (who was asked to run for office there) and Ronald Reagan, then president of the Screen Actors' Guild. Following a period of ownership of the property by the Hartford Times during WWII and the early 1950's, it was slated for residential development by a private corporation when the 557 acres of Talcott Mountain came under public ownership in 1965 through the cooperative efforts of private conservationists and state and federal governments.
The 1,000-foot high promontory provides a splendid view of the Connecticut landscape. On the horizon, Mount Monadnock, eighty miles away in New Hampshire, is discernible. To the northwest, the Berkshires dominate the horizon. Long Island Sound is revealed as a thin blue streak to the south. Those with sharp vision can see an area estimated to be 1,200 square miles.
Hikers may encounter a variety of wildlife including deer, fox and rabbits in this natural sanctuary. Bird watchers enjoy occasional sightings of the turkey vulture, bald eagle, and pileated woodpecker. During May, visitors find wildflowers such as trillium, trout lily, wood anemone, and Dutchman's breeches among the damp, craggy rocks. Tables, grills, and toilets are available for picnickers.
