Avon Old Farms School ~ Antique
Avon Old Farms School is a single-sex boarding school for boys located in Avon, Connecticut. Theodate Pope Riddle was one of the first female architects in America and was the creator of Avon Old Farms. The school was originally run by the Pope-Brooks Foundation, which was founded in part by Theodate. It opened in 1927 and closed for a period during World War II to serve as a convalescent hospital for blind veterans. The current headmaster is Kenneth H. LaRocque. Avon Old Farms is in the Founders League.
