Every New England town used to have a "green" or "commons," where the cows grazed and the townspeople met. I read recently that there is only one Connecticut commons where agriculture is still actively practiced.
This is the bandstand on Canton's town green. There is no agriculture here. A busy state highway runs to the right of the commons.
