Avon Connecticut Real Estate and Community Information

The History of the Avon Connecticut Real Estate Market Spans More Than 200 Million Years

The first living things that lived in our area included dinosaurs such as Anchisaurus, Coelophysis and Eubrontes. They lived in territory that now includes Farmington Valley and Talcott Mountain.

The first people who lived in our area included a group of Algonquian Indians knowns as the Tunxis people. Most Connecticut-area anthropologists believe these people settled in our area about 1,000 years ago near the Farmington River.

The Tunxis people sold their land to a group of English settlers in 1640. Many of the English settlers established farms, stores and hotels that played an important role in our economy until the American Revolution.

Our population increased during the middle of the 19th century after the the Farmington Canal was constructed near what is now our downtown area. This interest was sustained during the late 19th century after railroad service was established in our area.

Our population grew during the middle of the 20th century after Hartford-area residents discovered our open spaces, clean neighborhoods and affordable home prices. This discovery has continued to encourage Hartford-area residents to purchase homes and commercial properties in our area.
