Help Burn the Cannon Corner Mortgage!

Help the Society retire its remaining mortgage on the historic Cannon Corner property!


Located by the Cannondale Historic District, at the corner of Olmstead Hill Road and Route 7,  the small complex is a shining example of the beauties of preservation and adaptive reuse.  A 19th –century barn, blacksmith shop and run-down garage have been renovated and repurposed. Wilton is enhanced with an attractive and thriving mixed use site which accommodates an antiques shop, woodworking business, office suite and residential apartment.  


All contributions will be recognized on a plaque to be placed in the foyer of the Betts House at the Society’s Museum Complex .  Thank you for supporting our mission to preserve Wilton’s architectural heritage.
