The Hartford Connecticut Temple is the 155th temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the world. It will serve nearly 27,000 Church members in Connecticut, western Rhode Island, western Massachusetts and eastern New York.

A Mormon temple was originally proposed for Hartford in 1992, but this plan was postponed when a suitable site could not be found. In October 2010, Church President Thomas S. Monson announced that a temple would now be built in the area. Construction began with a formal groundbreaking on August 17, 2013.
