Wilton Real Estate Reports
Wilton is a rural residential town rich in New England history. The first written record of the area dates back to 1640 when Roger Ludlow and his friends purchased land from the Native Americans 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.

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.
