Portrait of opera singer Lillian Nordica by Hermann Schmiechen.
Lillian, a native of Farmington, was the first singer to be heard in the new Trocadero in Paris and her assocation with the Metropolitan Opera House in New York brought her fame.
Her birth home is now a museum called the Nordica Homestead Museum and many of her belongings can be viewed including her gowns, tiaras, furniture, and paintings.
