Imagine a place where nature inspires art, and creativity is second nature.
Where your salad was just picked by your neighbors.
Where evenings are lit by fireflies, not cellphones.
A place close enough to the city to remind you how far you’ve come.

LAND HERE.

Living Life in Simsbury

Simsbury is made up of four hamlets that together form a community unlike any other in Connecticut. The focus is on a life well-lived. It’s about getting back to the land, and having a real relationship with nature. It’s about putting ‘neighbor’ back into neighborhoods by allowing the true meaning of community to flourish.

Simsbury isn’t traffic jams and treeless cul-de-sacs, it’s community gardens, cultural events, a farmer’s market hosted by a 4-star restaurant, a neighborhood bakery, music festivals and gathering by the river. Simsbury wasn’t developed, it was…and is…inspired.

History

Once you settle in Simsbury, you won’t want to leave. This is something that has been proven for centuries. Indeed, the town has thrived for over 370 years. One of Simsbury’s largest employers Ensign-Bickford settled in Simsbury 180 years ago and is still flourishing today. Ensign-Bickford, inventor of the safety fuse for the mining industry, was instrumental in bringing modern infrastructure to the center of town. The charming four-square homes on Hopmeadow and West Streets were all built as ‘workforce housing’ by Ensign-Bickford for their employees.

Always ahead of their time, Ensign-Bickford has led the way brightly for the dozens of national and international companies now call Simsbury home. This combination of classic New England community and thriving economic growth makes Simsbury a sought-after place to live, work, and play.

Today, the companies take an active role in all sorts of public/private partnerships that have helped the town thrive. This continuous presence and guiding influence has helped make it a vibrant New England town, embodying the Connecticut slogan, ‘Land of Steady Habits’.

Tradition meets innovation at Millwright’s Restaurant and Tavern in Simsbury. James Beard Award winning Chef/Owner Tyler Anderson want guests to feel that the dining room is their home away from home, a gathering spot to enjoy inspired New England cuisine in a beautiful, historic setting. The from-scratch kitchen signals his culinary team’s commitment to sophisticated comfort food carefully crafted from locally-sourced ingredients.

The Mill at Hop Brook has been an integral part of Simsbury’s history since the 17th century.  The unique structure has inspired not only Millwright’s New England cuisine but also the restaurant’s name.

Chef/owner Tyler Anderson feels a kinship with the millwrights, who built and maintained the mill’s machinery to refine lumber and process grains for the townspeople. Now, as the millwright of a renovated building and modern kitchen, Tyler and his staff provides sustenance and award-winning, farm-to-table dining experiences for locals and out-of-town guests at the mill-turned-restaurant.

To Chef Tyler Anderson, New England’s regional cooking always has an element of comfort – “hearty food for hardy people,” he says. Many factors combine to produce the food that Tyler calls “New England cuisine with a twist.”

As a classically trained chef, Tyler draws on a foundation of age-old French cooking techniques. That foundation supports culinary methods specific to historic New England, such as the practice of roasting vegetables in salt over a wood fire. Pickling, preserving and canning summer’s fresh bounty ensures locally-grown foods for winter’s use and again honors the region’s food practices.

Tyler, Chef de Cuisine Luke Venner and their culinary team also understand the impact of the highest-quality fresh ingredients in their cooking. Millwright’s kitchen uses local ingredients – grown, raised, produced, foraged and prepared – whenever possible. Tyler has made the commitment to buy 80 percent of the ingredients used in the kitchen from purveyors in New England and upstate New York. He also takes the farm-to-table concept one step further. Millwright’s has partnered with a farm that will grow most of its organic produce – and Tyler doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty when visiting the farm or tending to his own home garden.

Deborah’s love of nature, through observation and academic study has a strong influence on her painting. She finds enjoyment, interest, and beauty in her surroundings. In the more traditional pieces, atmospheric conditions and varied brush strokes are used to express the subject matter. She often prefers to emphasize the simple elegance of a single tree or a forgotten barn. Her work captures the light and mood of the soft meadows or misty ocean for a particular day, turning her canvas into a diary.

Using acrylics as her medium, she enjoys plein air painting as well as studio work. She is past president of Avon Arts Association and past vice president of the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society. She is a founding member of Simsbury Open Studios. She was also co-founder of the Farmington Valley’s City and Country Canvases event. She has held leadership positions in many local art groups and has done much to promote the arts in her community and beyond. She teaches at the Farmington Valley Arts Center and she continues to teach art at the Simsbury community center as she has for sixteen years.

Her work has won awards and appeared in numerous juried shows. She is dedicated to preserving the Connecticut farmland and watershed areas that are the subjects of so many of her paintings. Working with various like minded groups, she donates her art work and service to protect and educate.

The Old Drake Hill Bridge was built in 1892, spanning 183 feet over the Farmington River. In 1992 it was replaced by a new two-lane bridge. In 1995 the Old Drake Hill Bridge became Simsbury’s “Flower Bridge” through the hard work of a coalition of community groups, town officials and local businesses. Modest gardens of annuals and perennials were planted at both entrances to the bridge, and wooden flower boxes, made by local high school students, were hung along the railings.

The 165-foot-tall (50 m) Heublein Tower (pronounced HIGH-bline)[1] located in Talcott Mountain State Park in Connecticut (USA) provides panoramic views of the Hartford skyline and the Farmington River Valley that are particularly spectacular in the fall. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

Gilbert Heublein was a magnate in the area of food and beverage, most notably as manufacturer of A1 Steak Sauce and Smirnoff Vodka; he founded Heublein Inc.  While hiking with his fiance Louise M. Gundlach on Talcott Mountain, he promised her that one day he would build her a castle there.

[2]

Visitors who brave the 110 steps to the observation room at the top of the tower are rewarded with an unparalleled view of the Farmington Valley, West Hartford and the Hartford skyline.  The total hike is around 1.25 miles.

 

“Heublein Tower is worth the hike”
5 of 5 starsReviewed July 29, 2013

The one-plus mile walk to the tower is well worth the hike. The view from the top of the hill is great, but the 360 view from the tower is fabulous (on a clear day). Not to be done in high heels or with a baby stroller!

I’ve hiked here many times over 45 years and the hike gets more strenuous, but is worth it! If you plan to go prior to Memorial Day or after foliage season, bring your own water, because the fountain will be turned off.
