We are thrilled to welcome you to Wilton. Like you, many of us are transplants from other places who came to town in search of a more relaxed, friendly, and family-oriented way of life.

If you haven't already, you'll discover lots of charming locally-owned businesses like the Village Market, Arena Haircutting, Scoops and many others.

We hope you settle in and get familiar with the rhythm of our town -- productive work during the week and kid's sports on the weekend -- and get to meet your neighbors.

Wilton Has Always Defended its Independence

During the Revolutionary War, more than 300 men from Wilton with names like Olmstead, Keeler, and Hurlbutt served in the Continental Army. One of these Wilton patriots was an African American named Cato Treadwell (1762–1849), who served three years in the 2nd Brigade of the Connecticut Line. (He later become one of the first Mormons to reach Utah.) 

The War came to Wilton briefly in 1777 when the British had to retreat through the village after their invasion of Danbury in an attempt to confiscate the citizens' weapons. Although several Wilton houses were set afire, none were destroyed since the retreat was too rapid.

About fifty-two Revolutionary veteran graves are still identifiable in Wilton cemeteries.
