Permanent Collection

Making connections between objects, places and stories to ensure that history is relevant to everyone, the History is Here permanent exhibition presents a compelling timeline of “Connecticut’s History, Wilton’s Story”. Kids and adults alike love the “Just Like Grandma Used to Make” room, where you can touch everything!  Period rooms and exhibit spaces display objects and collections, such as  textiles, costumes, toys, tools, furniture, and redware.  Archives and works on paper are located in the History Room at the Wilton Library, available by appointment.  The eighteen carefully preserved and maintained 18th-and19th- century buildings owned by the Wilton Historical Society comprise its largest collection (literally)!
