Have you ever wanted to learn more about your historic house, property or neighborhood? Do you ever wonder about who used to live in your historic house, and what they did for a living? Curious about the road’s interesting name, or why certain property features exist? Kelly Morron, a long time Wilton resident, had all these questions and more about her historic house, and will present If Your House Could Speak: How to Research Your Historic Home. She will discuss how to research a historic structure through land records, deeds, maps, photographs and other reference materials. Nick Foster, Collections Coordinator for the Society, will explain what kinds of resources are available in the Wilton Library’s History Room, which houses the archives and works on paper of the Wilton Historical Society. A light lunch is included.
