About Riverton

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.
