Luna Park – Who Knew?

The entrance to Luna Park, ca. 1907

… that Luna Park in West Hartford, a popular attraction at the turn of the 20th century, was demolished in the 1930s to make way for a Pratt & Whitney factory and today a Home Depot resides on the spot.

The park, with its nickel admission price, offered up a Ferris wheel, miniature train ride, concession stands, and attractions such as the Palace of Fun and the Temple of Mirth.
