Welcome to virtual Killingworth
The real thing is better, of course — we have miles of country roads, even more miles of old stone walls, hundreds of acres of woods and streams, starry skies. We also have a great community, which includes the renowned rehabilitation center for birds of prey, the first net-zero home in Connecticut, dozens of sports teams for children of all ages, community gardens, historic places, and a score of active civic groups.

Virtual Killingworth, however, will answer many of your questions, save you trips and phone calls, and help you understand the town government. It will give you access to many services the town offers and allow you to keep up with what’s going on in the various committees and commissions that govern Killingworth. You can also communicate with Town Hall easily and quickly by clicking here (in an emergency, however, please call 911).

Whether you live in the real Killingworth or are just visiting, please let us know what we can do to serve you better.

A new artisan market at Parmelee Farm
Thanks to the tireless efforts of Karen Milano and Linda Dudek, this September will bring the Parmelee Farm Artisan Market on Saturday, September 8th 10 am – 3pm, rain or shine, at the Parmelee Farm, 465 Route 81, Killingworth. Proceeds will go to Parmelee Farm improvements.

Over 50 artisans and crafters will fill the pavilion and property with quality handmade crafts and products—pottery, jewelry, soaps, art, woodworking, fiber arts, jams and jellies, fresh vegetables, flowers, cookies and candy, and much more. Watch pottery, spinning, and metal work demonstrations. Fun activities for kids will include "Touch-a-Truck." Food vendors will be available all day. The Historical Society Farmhouse will be open, with an array of sports memorabilia on display. Parking and admission will be free.

Thanks also, once again, to the volunteers who have made Parmelee Farm such a beautiful property. The Artisan Market will be a perfect opportunity to visit! For more information on the artisan market, go to
