Antique water pump


If you look to the right as you’re leaving Wilton’s town hall campus, you’ll see an antique Rumsey water pump on the grass of the 201-year-old
St. Matthew's Cemetery at 242 Danbury Road. The pump served the St. Matthew’s parsonage, which once stood at south edge of the cemetery. ‘That building burned down in a spectacular fire in 1922,’ said town historian Bob Russell. — Kendra Baker photo
