Walking Tours: Beautiful Mile and Memento Mori

Beautiful Mile: Take a stroll down memory lane with our walking tour of Historic Farmington Village. Through its architecture, Farmington's Main Street tells the story of its 17th-century beginnings to the dawn of the industrial age. Learn about the changing landscape of this beautiful and historic street and how it reflects the activities and challenges of the people who resided here. You'll  hear about merchants and other village residents and hear stories of Farmington long ago.

Memento Mori: One of the most beautiful burying grounds in Connecticut, Memento Mori has much to tell us about the history and customs of Farmington’s people of the past. Learn how it reflects changing ideas about religion and the world. Hear about the artwork represented on the headstones, and the restoration efforts underway to preserve this heritage treasure.
