Prosperity Grows

As the number of industries grew in Farmington in the late 1700s, the town became increasingly prosperous. Factories manufactured linen, hats, leather goods, muskets, and buttons. There were several clockmakers in town, as well as cabinetmakers, silversmiths, goldsmiths, candle makers, weavers, and carriage builders.
