ABOUT WILTON

Wilton is a town located north of the Merritt Parkway in Fairfield County.  With a population of 18,000, Wilton residents have made schools a top priority.  The town’s high-performing school system is a primary draw for people who don’t need the water-centric lifestyles and convenient train stops in the neighboring suburbs to the south.

Wilton’s property tax rate is considerably higher than those in nearby Westport, Darien, and New Canaan, but you get more house for your money.  Homes are spread out on large lots across 27 square miles.  Unless you live near the town center, walking can be dangerous because of the absence of sidewalks on the many scenic but narrow winding roads.

Most families carpool, and the school bus system helps. Some well-traveled routes, such as Ridgefield and Belden Hill roads, are known for handsome historic homes and stone walls. Wilton has preserved much of its architectural heritage in five town-designated historic districts. But elsewhere, four-bedroom colonials on two acres predominate.
