Downtown helps reduce urban sprawl by concentrating activity in one area. Located 2.2 miles via W 10 Mile Road is the Farmington Historical Museum. Founded in 1954, the Farmington Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the town’s history and educating the public about its significance. We sponsor exhibits, lectures and other events, and we provide tours of the Freedom Trail’s Underground Railroad and Amistad sites. The town is what it is today because of educators like Sarah Porter, who started Miss Porter’s School for girls in 1843; architects such as Theodate Pope, a student of Porter’s who built the home that’s now the Hill-Stead Museum; and collectors like Alfred Pope—one of the first Americans to collect the Impressionist paintings of Monet, Manet, Degas and Whistler—and Wilmarth Sheldon Lewis, who founded the Lewis Walpole Library. Like the river flowing through the town, Farmington’s history is always near at hand, seldom far from view, linking past and present.
