The village of Northfield, bordering Thomaston and Harwinton, is known for the Northfield Knife Company (1858-1926), whose ruins were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. The Knife Shop Dam and waterfall are a scenic attraction. The Northfield Historical Society has a display case in the local Gilbert Library, home to its archives.
