The Connecticut General Assembly met alternately in the two largest cities, Hartford and New Haven starting in 1701. The first state house in New Haven, which was also used by the courts, was built in 1719. In 1763 a new state house was erected. Another new state house was built in 1828 and functioned until 1873 when Hartford became the sole capital of the state. The last house in New Haven fell into disrepair and was demolished in 1889.
