Thomaston is a quaint New England town home to approximately 7,800 residents. The town is nestled near route eight and just minutes from the picturesque Litchfield Hills. Named after the well-known clockmaker, Seth Thomas who used his clock factory to convert the town from a farming community into a thriving industrial area. While the clock industry has left Thomaston, the area continues to flourish commercially and residentially. The popular downtown area is home to the famed Thomaston Opera House, built in 1884, which serves as a multigenerational education and cultural center.
