It is the most beautiful school in the country. Farmington is known as the Town of Beautiful Homes, and most of those are actually owned by the school. If you want to see what a great boarding school SHOULD be, if nothing else, just drive down Main Street and ogle the architecture.

this is a beautiful walking tour..porters is in the area of historic Farmington.during school opening..please be careful with pics..security is high and many families donot appreciate picture taking when students changing school buildings etc. please ask permission to take photos even if on sidewalk.fall is charming..just have consideration for the privacy of the students and enjoy the walk.

The campus is smack in the middle of a stunningly charming old New England village.
