The trolley began service in Newington in 1894 and connected Hartford and New Britain.The ride from Newington to the city took 20 minutes and cost five cents.In 1898 Newington’s Virginia Thrall Smith had appealed to the town's political leaders to build an asylum in Newington for the purpose of caring for neglected children.Overwhelmingly the town approved the request after Smith purchased land at the foot of Cedar Mountain in the town’s eastern portion.Known as “West Farms,” the area west of the central portion of Wethersfield became settled by those who were almost exclusively the descendants of the earliest Wethersfield settlers.
Farms still comprised the bulk of Newington land, but the road to the world of suburbia was being paved. Newington had only 1,000 people living in it at the start of the twentieth century, but the number reached 4,000 by 1930.
In 1871, Newington had a population of 871 people with 132 dwellings, and roughly 130 farms, a substantial increase from the start of the nineteenth century.
When Wethersfield town leaders refused to fund highway improvements for better access to the railroads, the town formally declared its independence on July 10.
Wethersfield had done likewise, and two population centers were produced as a result.
One centered on Wethersfield’s inner village still closely tied to the Connecticut River; the other in Newington had developed its own identity distinct from its mother town.
