Rocky Hill is a town in Hartford County, Connecticut, United States. The population was 19,709 at the 2010 census. Rocky Hill was part of Wethersfield, the neighboring town to the north, until it was independently incorporated in 1843. Rocky Hill is a typical bedroom community as many residents commute to work in the larger urban centers of Hartford to the north and New Haven to the south. In 2003, Rocky Hill was voted the #1 Sportstown in Connecticut by Sports Illustrated for demonstrating high quality involvement in facilitating and enhancing community sports. In 2007, Rocky Hill was named #35 in Money magazine's "Best Places to Live Top 100", citing easy commuting to Hartford, local job availability, strong schools, and a central location between New York City and Boston. Rocky Hill is the home of one of the largest dinosaur track sites in North America, Dinosaur State Park. Rocky Hill also was once the headquarters of Ames Department Stores, which ceased business operations in 2002.
