About the Town of Wilton
Wilton can best be characterized as a very pleasant, rural residential community. Connecticut Magazine named it the number one town in its size category for two years. It may be a one hour train ride from Grand Central Station in New York City, but beautiful historic architecture intermingled with traditional and contemporary homes help maintain Wilton’s countrified atmosphere. The picturesque Town Green in Wilton Town Center gives Wilton a distinctive New England charm.
Wilton Attractions and Recreation
Just outside of town on Danbury Road is The Wilton Heritage Museum, a classic 1750’s center-chimney house decorated with period furnishings and costumes. The town’s first railroad station (1852) sits at the historic Cannondale Crossing next to an 1880’s general store, post office and a Greek Revival one-room schoolhouse.
The Woodcock Nature Center is a 146-acre sanctuary with self-guided hiking trails, a nature store and exhibits. Another mile or so up the road is the state’s only national park, the 153-acre Weir Farm National Historic Site, which was originally the creative sanctuary of American impressionist painter Julian Alden Weir.
