23. An Amazing Journey Through Time at the Wilton Historical Society

The Wilton Heritage Center combines two18th c. classic center chimney homes showcasing 14 period rooms that represent a continuum from the colonial era through 1910.  The rooms are meticulously furnished to show the changes in Connecticut home life, the economy, furniture and decorations from 1740 – 1910.  Collections of special interest include textiles, costumes, Norwalk made redware and a permanent exhibition of more than 600 tools.  A special feature of the Center is the Barn Loft that connects the two houses. The Loft showcases an amazing collection of dollhouses and toys.  An art Gallery with changing exhibits is also a highlight of the museum.  A fully outfitted blacksmith shop is located on the grounds and is open on Sun. when the museum is open.
