History of Wilton CT

In 1640, a man named Roger Ludlow acquired Indian lands between the Norwalk and Saugatuck Rivers. He never relocated to the land but in 1650, another group purchased the property. They established a settlement of families and enlisted a congregationalist minister as required by the local government. Town business owners eventually operated sawmills, a grist mill, and a tavern as required by Connecticut Code.

After years of petitioning, Wilton gained parish rights in 1726; although, formally, it remained a part of Norwalk. The parish built its first meeting house that same year. In 1790, after the first and second meetinghouses deteriorated, they built a church on Ridgefield Rd. The original church is still standing today.

Three hundred Wilton men fought in the Revolutionary war. Wilton is also known for a 1777 attack. As British soldiers retreated from a confrontation in Danbury, they set fire to homes in Wilton.

Wilton remained a part of Norwalk until the Connecticut General Assembly granted them independent government status in 1802.
