Brimming with small-town charm and boasting all the modern amenities, Farmington is a community proud of its past and looking forward to a bright future.

Founded over 180 years ago, Farmington is the result of generations seeking – and finding – a better place to work, live and raise families.  Downtown Farmington has grown up around a hub of commercial activity along Grand River Avenue.

Downtown Farmington has retained many of its classic, historic buildings.  The landmark Farmington Civic Theater is one of the few old-fashioned movie houses still in operation in the region.  Our unique blend of timeless architecture and modern shops make strolling through Downtown Farmington a truly enjoyable experience.
