Welcome to Riverton, Connecticut!
Where the water meets the woods.
Nestled along the Farmington River, the town of Barkhamsted, and the village of Riverton within, has something to offer everyone. History, nature and outdoor activities abound. Riverton appears today just as it must have 100 years ago with its colonial houses, general store, churches, inns and trees lining the streets. The landmark factory, Hitchcock Chair Company Store, began manufacturing chairs here in 1826. By 1928, the elaborately stenciled chairs and cabinets made in Hitchcocksville, now called Riverton, became famous throughout America.
