Route 219 begins at an intersection with US 202 in southern New Hartford and heads north, northeast, and east before crossing the West Branch Farmington River at the town center. It then continues east to cross the East Branch Farmington River before turning north along the eastern shore of the McDonough Reservoir into Barkhamsted. In Barkhamsted, it continues north along the east shore of the McDonough Reservoir to its northern end, then turns northeast. It briefly overlaps Route 179 before continuing northeast into Granby. In Granby, it continues northeast to end at an intersection with Route 20.
Route 219 was commissioned in 1935 from an unsigned state road (old SR 711), running from the current route of US 202 to US 44 in New Hartford, along a route including Bridge Street and Cottage Street. In 1944, Route 219 took over part of Route 179, extending it to Barkhamsted. In 1955, a section of Steele Road in New Hartford that had been town-maintained was added to the state highway system, completing state-maintenance of the route. Later in the same year, the Cottage Street Bridge was destroyed in a flood, temporarily severing the route. In 1959, the New Hartford section of the route was rerouted to its current location over a new bridge. In 1960, Route 219 was extended to its current northern terminus over a former section of Route 181 (SR 721).
