Avon, a haven for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and reside in a quieter community.

Originally a part of Farmington, Avon was settled in 1645.

Avon is known for its superb education and is home to Avon Old Farms School, a prestigious preparatory all boys boarding school, The Farmington Valley Academy Montessori, Talcott Mountain Academy of Science Mathematics and Avon High School.

Avon is home to 1st Company Governor’s Horse Guards, chartered in 1788 as the Governor’s Independent Volunteer Troop of Horse Guards. Through the late 1800s and early 1900s the Horse Guard served as a dignified escort to many presidents, governors, military heroes and dignitaries including George Washington, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, Commodore Thomas McDonough and Lafayette.

Riverdale Farms Shopping and Avon Village Marketplace hosts many of Avon’s businesses, restaurants and shops. Avon has a vast array of cuisine ranging from Thai to Italian, Indian to Mexican and anywhere in between.

For the outdoorsman there are plenty of state parks to choose from for picnics, walking paths or day hikes including Penwood State Park, Talcott Mountain State Park and Horse Guard State Park as well as Rails-to-Trails.
