History of Wilton CT

In 1640, 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. This church is still standing today.

Three hundred Wilton men fought in the Revolutionary war. Wilton is also known for the 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.

Your Wilton Relocation Checklist

At Brooke Group Real Estate, we understand that relocating is often stressful. We work closely with you to make the process as stress-free as possible. Our buyer’s agents provide advice, assistance, and service during your initial consultation, your Wilton home search, your closing, and beyond. 

 

1

CONTACT A REAL ESTATE AGENT

Contacting a Real Estate Agent when you first learn that you’ll be relocating to Wilton CT is crucial. When you contact Brooke Group Real Estate, we take immediate steps to assist you in your search. We assess your home-buying requirements and use our resources to locate compatible properties.

2

SHARE YOUR HOME-BUYING GOALS WITH YOUR AGENT

You probably know what you want even before you begin your search. Once we understand your home buying goals, we focus on looking for specific property types and targeting those that meet your specifications.

3

VISIT BEFORE RELOCATING

You get a better feel for a home when you take a tour. An in-person visit allows you to see important details you might not notice in a print or online ad. We recommend extending your stay for a day or two so you can get a feel for the town and the people who will make up the community.

If you can’t visit before relocating to Wilton, online listings often provide media presentations. Many include high definition photos, walkthrough videos, or 3D virtual tours. The right media presentation could make you feel confident enough to make a choice without seeing a property in person.

4

HIRE A PROFESSIONAL MOVER

DIY moving is an economical option but it can easily cause “relocation burnout”. Relocating to Wilton (or anywhere!) may often be stressful. Movers help you reduce that stress. They pack everything, load everything, and drive it to your location. When they arrive at your destination they put everything exactly where you want it.

5

CONNECT WITH WILTON CT SERVICES

One of the biggest hassles of relocating to Wilton is finding new service companies, professionals, and suppliers. To help you get started, we’ve listed some of the contacts you’ll need.

6

SELL YOUR CURRENT HOME

Arranging to have your home sold is one of the most difficult things you’ll have to do before relocating to Wilton. If you’re moving because of a job, you won’t likely have enough time to sell your home. You might not even have enough to get it on the market!

When you contact us about relocating, we can also connect you with one of our associates in your area. You’ll have a Real Estate Professional working with you on both ends to make your home buying and selling go as smoothly as possible.
