Wilton … Where the Historic Past and the Gracious Present Meet
Centuries ago, Native American signal fires blazed atop the dramatic glacial ridges of Wilton. Today, this richly historic town cherishes a rural ambiance. Winding back roads pass through the rolling hills, beautifully refreshed by woods, streams, ponds and the Norwalk River. Originally a farming community, Wilton’s growth has been carefully zoned and monitored, protecting its air of quietly traditional grace. More than 200 restored antique homes dating from the 1700’s and 1800’s harmoniously mingle with the more recent residences, whose varied architectural styles complement Wilton’s timeless charm. Most homes are set on two-acre properties and several condominiums exist. Primarily residential, Wilton is 26.8 square miles in area, has a population of 16,500 people and is governed by an elected Board of Selectmen.
