American Artisan Show

The Wilton Historical Society welcomed more than one hundred guests for the opening of its 2014 American Artisan Show on Friday, Oct. 17. The 29th-annual event included artisan-crafted items like custom-made shoes, bedpan banjos and framed textile patterns. Another big draw of the night was the society's silent auction, which featured a Breitling watch, a lock of John F. Kennedy's hair, and a guided tour of Wilton by former First Selectman Bob Russell.
