Burlington is located in Hartford County west of Farmington on Highway 4 on the edge of Nassahegon State Forest.

The community was named for Richard Boy, Earl of Burlington. Sixty Burlington men enlisted in the American Civil War during those tumultuous years of 1861 - 1865. And for those fortunate 46 who survived battle, prison and disease, each one had his own unique story to tell after the two great armies folded up the battle flags at Appomattox.

Permanent settlers came between 1740 and 1755 to the territory that used to be of Farmington. In 1806 Bristol was divided. The parts that were withing the limits of West Britain was incorporated as the town of Burlington.

Local attractions include: Nassahegon State Forest, Sessions Woods Wildlife Area, Bristol Reservoir # 4, Bristol Reservoir # 5, Bristol Reservoir # 6, and the American Clock and Watch Museum.
