The Farming Town Prospers

The first homes of the settlers in Farmington were rough-hewn log huts, but as the town became more established the huts gave way to wooden frame houses. A rare surviving example of this type of Colonial house, with post-and-beam construction and a large central chimney, is the Stanley Whitman House on High Street, built around 1720.
