Adapting historic buildings and its place in Wilton

Are you curious about historic preservation in Wilton? How does the Wilton Historical Society protect the town’s heritage? What does adaptive use mean and how does it contribute to Wilton’s economic health?

The Wilton Historical Society will host the Jan. 28 board meeting of the Wilton League of Women Voters and lead a discussion about the preservation of Wilton’s historic buildings. Society Director Leslie Nolan will describe the programs and collections of the society, its three campuses, and adaptive use structures. Her talk will allow time for questions about ways in which Wilton's town boards and the community can implement proactive approaches to historic preservation.

The presentation begins at 10 a.m. at the historical society, 224 Danbury Road, and will be followed by a League board meeting. The program is open to the public at no charge.
