History

Seventeenth and eighteenth centuries

Farmington was originally inhabited by the Tunxis Indian tribe. In 1640 a white settlement was established by residents of Hartford, making Farmington the oldest inland settlement West of the Connecticut River and one of the oldest communities in the state. They found the area ideal for settling because of its rich soil, location along the floodplain of the Farmington River, and valley geography. The Connecticut River as seen from the French King Bridge in western Massachusetts. ... Farmington River and environs The Farmington River is a river located in the northwest of the US States of Connecticut and southwest Massachusetts. ...


The town and river were given their present names in 1645, which is considered the incorporation year of the town. The town's boundaries were later enlarged several times making it the largest in the Connecticut Colony by far. Farmington has been called the "mother of towns" because its vast area was divided to produce nine other central Connecticut communities. The burough of Unionville, in Farmington's northwest corner, was once home to many factories harnessing the water power of the Farmington River. // Events January 10 - Archbishop Laud executed on Tower Hill, London. ...


Located in the picturesque Farmington Valley, Farmington is steeped in history and New England charm. Main Street, in the historic village section, is lined with colonial estates, some of which date back to the 17th century. During the Revolutionary War George Washington passed through Farmington on several occasions and referred to the town as "the village of pretty houses."[1] In addition, French troops under General Rochambeau encamped in Farmington enroute to the Battle of Gettysburg to offer crucial support of Washington's army.

Furthermore, Farmington played an important role in the famous Amistad slaveship trial.

While never a commercial success, the canal's right of way and towpath was eventually used for a railroad, portions of which were used even up to the 1990s. Much of the towpath and the railroad bed has now been converted to a cycling and running trail running from New Haven to Northampton, Massachusetts.

Development issues

Many residents have repeatedly fought proposals by the state to widen Route 4, a main thoroughfare linking northwestern Connecticut to I-84, fearing that such a move would compromise the character and integrity of the town.

Farmington's real estate values are among the highest in the region.

81.ch.04: The Farmington Canal 1822-1847: An Attempt At Internal Improvement (8936 words)

Although completion of the canal to Northampton and the Connecticut River would not be accomplished until 1835, the years between 1830 and 1835 witnessed a steady stream of business on the canal with some minor interruptions because of damages or weather.
The most noticeable failure of this Connecticut attempt at internal improvement was the inability of all three corporations to find sources of adequate capital to sustain the functions of the company.
