Pomfret is a small
picturesque town located in Northeastern Connecticut. Rich with
open land as result of Mashamoquet Brook State Park, the town has
changed through the years from being strictly rural agricultural
but has approximately 14 farms which include dairy farms, apple
orchards, grapes vineyards and pumpkin ranches.
While traveling on scenic
Route 169, a designated National Scenic Byway, you will see
historic churches, pre-Revolutionary homes, stone walls and quaint
town greens create a rich tapestry of New England charm that is
visible at every turn. The landscape, richly sprinkled with
rolling hills and green pastures, is reminiscent of a simpler way
of life. Area activities include fishing, hiking, canoeing,
swimming and of course skiing.
Area attractions include
Mashamoquet State Park, Wolf Den State Park, Brayton Grist Mill,
Marcy Blacksmith Museum, Martha's Herbary, 700 acre Connecticut
