Wilton Town Green
Built - 1988

Wilton is a town in Fairfield County, Connecticut which was settled in the early 18th century and became an independent town in 1802 separating from Norwalk. The town is mostly a residential community with an open landscape which is a testament to its colonial roots. During the Revolutionary War, a large number of Wilton residents signed on for military units. The war briefly came to Wilton when the British retreated through the village in 1777 after their invasion of Danbury. The town is still rich in historical architecture with more than 500 18th and 19th century homes still standing.
Wilton's bandstand was built on the Town Green by the Rotary Club in 1988 through private donations and is the first one the town has had. Due to its small size, it is mostly the venue for Veterans and Memorial Day ceremonies and other community events.
