Avon CT Pine Grove School

Opened in the fall of 1865, Pine Grove schoolhouse offered a wide range of subjects to the eight grades of schoolchildren who were taught there.

Founded in 1645 as part of Farmington, Avon, Connecticut is a picturesque town in Farmington Valley region known for the nearby Talcott Mountain, a part of the Metacomet ridge.In 1828, the Farmington Canal opened with freight and passenger service between New Haven and Simsbury. It soon expanded and linked the Northampton and points south with Long Island Sound and New York City. With the development of the Farmington Canal Railroad, the canal ceased operation in 1847. Passenger service in Avon ended in the 1940s, and freight service in 1991.

Avon established itself as a leader in education through its resident boarding institution, Avon Old Farms School. It even hosts a historic schoolhouse, the Pine Grove Schoolhouse, which today serves the community as a museum.

Avon is a great community to live in or simply visit, which is why in 2005 Money Magazine named Avon one of the safest towns in America.
