How a Historic Hartford Building Next to I-84 Survived Decades of Change

The Isham-Terry house, a lone Italianate villa, sits on a corner in Hartford within view of drivers headed eastbound on I-84.

"While I suspend my candidacy today, I will continue to travel this country and fight for those Americans who refuse to settle for the way things are and a status quo that no longer works for them," said Fiorina in a statement.
