    Wilton, CT 06897   Wilton is rich with history and has had settlers since the 1600's.  Like most Fairfield County towns, Wilton began as a farming community but with our rocky soil industry shifted, and many Mills were erected along the Norwalk river. With the help of the railroad we were able to import and export goods easily.   As the years went by and our country evolved Wilton's economy shifted again and as of the mid 20th century became more of a commuting town to New York City.  This lead to a huge boom in population, from approximately 4,500 to 13,500 by the 1970's. Currently, Wilton remains an easy commute to New York City and many people choose this town for it's convenience to the city, but also it's rural charm.   Wilton's population is about 18,000, and the average list ...

Miller- Driscoll Elementary School's Read Aloud Program in Wilton, CT What a wonderful program for the school children!   Every year,  our local market, The Village Market,  purchases enough books to have at least one in each classroom, and in the library.    We local volunteers (most of us are pretty civic minded and /or huge kid lovers each take a book for their grade level assigned, and follow the chosen child guide to the classroom.   Then after some introductions and discussions about the subject of the book, the volunteer reads the book.    What fun!   I always enjoy working with and interacting with the kids of today - they are witty, funny, quick, and always polite.    in other words, I had a lot of fun!

  The average sales price last month in Wilton was $899,282.   I thought it would be fun to see what you can get in surrounding towns in Fairfield County for a certain price.   The list price I am going to compare is around $850,000 and the towns are Weston, Ridgefield, New Canaan, Redding and for fun I'll show you Greenwich.     I chose these towns (except Greenwich) because they are not on Long Island Sound.   Greenwich is the most expensive town to live in Connecticut.  Most recently the most expensive home in the country went on the market in Greenwich for $190 million.  For this you get 50 acres, tennis courts, a pool, an orchard, views of Long Island Sound, private beaches, a beautiful 15,000sf Victorian mansion, but do save some money for upgrades the home has no central air and...
