Barkhamsted


Small-town charm aptly describes Barkhamsted, a rural Litchfield County community incorporated in 1779 and known for its rolling hills, lush forests and expansive, scenic reservoirs. The town of approximately 3,600 residents, located about 15 miles northwest of Hartford and encompassing 38.8 square miles, offers myriad opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. Home to several state forests – including People’s State Forest and the American Legion Forest – Barkhamsted offers endless outdoor recreational opportunities, from trout fishing and trail hiking to kayaking, canoeing and picnicking. The town’s primary bodies of water include not only the Farmington River, but also the Barkhamsted Reservoir, Lake McDonough and the Metropolitan District Commission’s watershed land. The Pleasant Valley section of Barkhamsted is perhaps best known for its charming Pleasant Valley General Store and iconic Pleasant Valley Drive-In Theater, which is one of the few remaining outdoor drive-in movie theaters in the state and a place of pride to residents. The town’s quaint village of Riverton, with its historic Main Street, is lined with a variety of dining and retail establishments. The highly anticipated Riverton Fair, held annually each fall, has delighted generations of Barkhamsted residents as well as visitors from near and far.
