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 also has running clubs, skiing clubs, tennis clubs, etc.   

In addition, the seniors are very well taken care of in the Senior Center (Lots of great activities,) Ogden House Wednesday luncheons, The Greens Assisted Living activiies, etc.    

The schools in Wilton are top in the state, competing yearly with the other smaller towns in Fairfield County for the number 1 spot.    They excel in the academics, as well as the music, arts, and sports programs.   

Wilton is a very well rounded town - ideal for a family to raise their children.     We have loved it here, raising our three here.

Hi Dagny, the increase in sales volume is not consistent over the months just like my market. But the stark improved performance is visible. Hoping you the best.

Dagny, I really enjoyed learning about Wilton; the history, what it has to offer today, etc. It seems like you have the best of two worlds, convenience to NYC with a more laid-back lifestyle. You really know your market area, and represent it well.
