Editor’s Note: Maria Taylor’s photo column, “Vintage Point,” shows scenes from Farmington’s past paired with photos of those same scenes today.
This historic district house at 23700 Warner Street celebrates its 150th birthday this spring. During the Great Depression, it was repossessed by the People’s State Bank of Farmington, and fell into disrepair until 1935. The porch is gone now, but the bay windows and decorative trim are original from 1866.
