Connecticut's 6th congressional district is a former district, which was eliminated in 2003, following the 2000 Census. It was initially created in 1837 from Connecticut's at-large district, yet was eliminated after the 1840 Census. In 1965, following passage of the Voting Rights Act, it was re-established.

During redistricting in 2002, a majority of the district was merged with the 5th district.

Prior to its elimination, the district included Litchfield County, the Farmington Valley, and commununties surrounding Hartford, including Bristol, Enfield, and New Britain.
