Farmington Visitor Center

Settled in the early 1640s and incorporated in 1645, Farmington was the first inland plantation established by the pioneering settlers of Connecticut's three river towns- Windsor, Wethersfield and Hartford. They were drawn by the rich alluvial soil of the river's flood plain, where the Tunxis Indians had lived and farmed for centuries. The town prospered, growing westward during the 19th century with vibrant manufacturing in the Unionville section.

Farmington's Visitor's Center is located in the Welcome Center of the Stanley Whitman House. You will find brochures about the area and places of interest.
