Wilton CT Real Estate
Wilton is a rural residential town rich in New England history. The first written record of the area that is now considered Wilton dates back to 1640, when Roger Ludlow and his friends purchased land from the Indians between the Norwalk and Saugatuck Rivers for “a day’s walk into the country”. Nestled in the Norwalk River Valley in southwestern Connecticut, Wilton is north of the City of Norwalk, west of the Town of Weston, and east of the Town of New Canaan. Winding roads, large lots and a generally rural feel lend Wilton a serene lifestyle. Bustling retail areas also abound with wonderful restaurants and all the modern amenities of an urban center.
Highly rated, Wilton’s Board of Education is responsible for the four pubic schools under their jurisdiction. Organized slightly differently than a traditional school progression, the Miller-Driscoll School serves pre-K to second grade, Cider Mill School grades 3-5, Middlebrook School grades 6-8, and Wilton High School grades 9 -12.

Wilton has a strong arts community represented by the Wilton Arts Council and enjoys many festivities and community events each year. A visit to the Weir Farm National Historic Site is always invigorating. Stemming from June 1882, when painter J. Alden Weir boarded a train from New York bound for his farm among the hills of Branchville, Connecticut, Weir Farm was transformed into a creative refuge for friends and fellow artists that still remains today. The Wilton Trackside Teen Center offers a multitude of opportunities for teens to get involved, while Wilton Children’s Theater offers a unique theatrical experience to the town’s children. Hiking, biking and all manner of sports teams abound as does a rich shopping experience in many nearby neighborhoods.
Wilton is only one hour from Grand Central Station from the Wilton, Cannondale or Branchville stations on the New Haven Line Danbury branch of Metro-North Railroad. For more detailed commuting information see Commuting To New York
