Welcome To Wilton

Modern meets farming just outside New York.
Wilton is also home to the only National Historic site in Connecticut, Weir Farm. This modern residential town is rich in New England history. Originally, Wilton began as a farming town, and throughout the decades has transformed into a suburban community with 20,000 residents.
Residents of Wilton take a lot of pride in their town of about 20,000 residents and have maintained much of the historical charm that has existed here for hundreds of years. Many of the historical buildings have been maintained and are listed on the historical registries. The beautiful colonial architecture that exudes New England charm can be seen in the older homes that were part of the Underground Railroad during the Civil War as well as in the newer architecture too to tie it all together. Some of the buildings in Wilton date back to the 1700's which are remarkable.
Nestled in the heart of Fairfield County, with consistently top ranked schools and an abundance of history and nature, Wilton is an ideal and safe community to raise your family or start or relocate your business. With easy access to the Merritt Parkway and RT 95 and with two train stations with free parking, Wilton is commutable to the area's major employment centers. Alternatively, Wilton is home to many national and regional
businesses allowing residents to live and work in one place.
Most of the main activity in Wilton happens in and around the Wilton Center with grocery stores, boutiques and restaurants for the residents to enjoy. It is a quaint center with white colonial buildings all maintaining that small town charm while providing the residents with all the latest shops or trendiest restaurants. Beautiful nature can also be found throughout the town with nature paths, ponds and lakes and golf courses to name
just a few. People enjoy these outdoor areas year round during the four beautiful seasons. The town can be divided into two parts, North and South Wilton with the Northern part bordering the town of Ridgefield and the Southern part bordering Norwalk.

Another reason many of the residents here move to Wilton, and maybe out of the city, is for the wonderful award winning schools. The educational system has been one of the best in the state of Connecticut offering the students the best in classes, technology and activities that much larger schools may have. Because the school is a bit smaller than other nearby towns, the students get the attention from teachers that they need to
succeed. Almost 99% of all Wilton High School graduates go on to attend a four-year college or university.
