FARMINGTON — The Farmington Historical Society recently presented its 6th annual mug featuring C.R. Tyler’s artwork. This year’s mug features “Tracy’s Maple Sap House,” which has been in operation for over 120 years. Located on Titcomb Hill, the original sap house was across the road. It burned in the late 1800s and was rebuilt in its current location. Each spring, sap is collected and boiled down to maple syrup by the Tracy family who bought the farm from a Titcomb descendant in the 1950s.

Artist C.R. Tyler (1918-2000) was an artist with Knowlton McLeary Printing for 35 years. Tyler combined his love of artwork and history, leaving a legacy of paintings and drawings of Farmington’s past.

Mugs cost $14.95 and available at Sugarwood Gallery and the Calico Patch in downtown Farmington.
