For Colonial Architecture aficionados, the houses in the historic village section of Farmington – along with Glastonbury’s and Wethersfield’s – are among the finest examples of early domestic architecture in Connecticut. George Washington passed through the town on several occasions and called the historic section “the village of pretty houses”.

Fortunately for Renaissance, and the trades in general, this trend of building “pretty houses” continues to this day and we have had the good fortune of being able to take our craft into many of them over the last 42 years. Though we have not had the opportunity to work in any of the period houses in the historic village section, we have worked extensively to the north in the “Mountain Section” of Farmington, as well as in Devonwood.

The house in the photo is one in which we refinished the kitchen cabinets as well as a set of wicker patio furniture.
