Photo above- This is a wonderful photo and a very old photo by Barkhamsted standards.  It shows the September 10, 1879 centennial celebration of Barkhamsted's incorporation as a Connecticut town.  The location is Barkhamsted Center, where over 4,000 people came from all over the country to attend the festivities.  The church steeple in the background is the Center Church (which currently does not have the top stage of the belfry shown here).  The smaller building was the town hall, now in use as a home.  The person taking this photo is standing where Route 181 is currently located, at the intersection of Day Road, Boettner Road and Old Town Hall Road.  The road shown in the photo would take you east (going to your right), down to Barkhamsted Hollow, where the Barkhamsted Reservoir is now located.
