Farmington, a small village along the Farmington River, was settled in 1645, by British colonists seeking religious freedom and economic opportunities. Its history is quite interesting, with homes that played a part in the Underground Railroad. A number of these homes are significant and therefore have been designated a Scenic Route by the State of Connecticut. A graceful blend of classic New England charm and the fine amenities of a modern suburban town, Farmington is dedicated to preserving its natural and historic beauty.

Beyond the quaint village with its well-preserved Colonial homes, significant museums like the Hill-Stead and the famous Miss Porter's School is the more modern Farmington, with newer subdivisions, excellent schools, outstanding recreational facilities like Winding Trails and restaurants, the valley's largest hotel, the UCONN Health Center, Farmington Country Club, Farmington Polo Grounds, major corporations and the area's largest retail attraction, the Westfarms Mall.
