What a Move to Farmington Has to Offer

Farmington is a town of roughly 25,000 residents on the Farmington River in Hartford County, Connecticut, close to the capital of Hartford. It is the headquarters of Otis Elevator Company, Carvel and Carrier Corporation, the largest manufacturer of air conditioning equipment in the world. The town was named after the town of Farmington, England, and was incorporated in 1645. At that time, the borders of Farmington encompassed a much larger area. Later, the following communities broke off and formed their own towns: Southington, in 1779; Berlin, in 1785; Bristol, in 1785; Wolcott, in 1796; Burlington, in 1806; Avon (as Northington), in 1845; New Britain, in 1850; and Plainville, in 1869.

There are many historic 18th-century houses along Main Street in the town, and George Washington once referred to Farmington as "the village of pretty houses" after passing through it several times. The town was a strong center for abolitionists, and it served as a "Grand Central Station" of the Underground Railroad. During the Amistad trial that was dramatized in the acclaimed movie of the same name, the captives from the Amistad ship and their rebel leader, Joseph Cinqué, were held here.

Historic sites in Farmington include the Hill-Stead Museum, an estate built for industrialist and art collector Alfred Atmore Pope. The estate was designed by his daughter, Theodate Pope Riddle, one of America's first female architects. Today, it is a museum housing a nationally renowned collection of Impressionist paintings, including works by Monet, Manet, Degas, Whistler and Cassatt.

Miss Porter's School, an elite preparatory school for girls founded by educational reformer Sarah Porter, is located in the center of the historic village section of the town. Famous alumni of the school include Lilly Pulitzer, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and members of the Vanderbilt, Rockefeller and Bush families.
