Governor's Foot Guard
The Governor's Foot Guard was organized in 1771, which makes it the oldest continuously serving military organization in the United States. Today it has mainly a ceremonial role. The Guards provide escorts to distinguished visitors and they march in parades.
The building is in an out-of-the-way stretch of High Street in downtown Hartford, a block from U.S. Route 84.
