Farmington balances the charm of a New England country village with the advantages of modern living and close proximity to Hartford. It offers some of the most beautiful and carefully preserved historic architecture in Connecticut.
Stately colonial homes and quaint shops in their original structures grace the center of town. Traditional homes of various sizes and styles, contemporary houses and modern condominiums are nestled around meadows, ponds and brooks in outlying neighborhoods.
Farmington established preserves like the Memorial Town Forest and Scott’s Swamp Sanctuary to protect its beauty. Outdoor activities include swimming, canoeing and fishing on the Farmington River; picnicking at Batterson Park and hiking at Winding Trail Recreation Area.
Residents are proud of their public school system. Newsweek magazine ranked Farmington High School the top public high school in Connecticut in May 2005. Miss Porter's School, a private college preparatory school for girls, occupies much of the village center.
The Stanley-Whitman House features antiques and historical artifacts, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Hill-Stead Museum, also on the national register, showcases one of the most impressive private art collections in the country
