From the back cover:
Farmington focuses on the people who have made the town an enticing place to live and learn. The early inhabitants are featured here in photographs, along with their homes and inventions, children and animals, celebrations and creations, and places of work and of worship. We see in these images the community's strength, artistry, and courage to make changes while preserving traditions. We also see the beauty that surrounds it: the natural outcroppings of rock, the outstanding 18th-century architecture, the high-quality educational facilities, and the successful enterprises.
Author Jean M. Martin has selected superb phonographs from local museums, libraries, churches, and individuals. Many of the photographs are from private collections and have never before been published. The most artistic images, from the earliest days of the camera, are the work of Karl Klauser, a pioneer in photography, a musician, and a teacher at Miss Porter's School of Farmington. Jean Martin has arranged this collection to tell the story of a place with rural values and urban interests that began as - and remains - a desirable and flourishing community.
