Wilton is a town nestled in the Norwalk River Valley in southwestern Connecticut, and located in Fairfield County. As of the 2010 census, the town population was 18,062.
Wilton was officially recognized as a parish of Norwalk in 1726, until 1802, when Wilton was granted a Town Charter by the Connecticut General assembly, and became a political entity independent of Norwalk. Today, Wilton, like many other Fairfield County towns, is an upscale residential community with open lands, historic architecture and extensive town services. Residents commonly commute to New York City, Stamford, and Norwalk, although there are a number of office buildings in town. Wilton was rated one of CNN’s top 25 towns to live, boasting an average household income of over $300,000 per family.
Wilton is home to Cannondale Bicycle Corporation, Melissa & Doug, and the Blue Buffalo Company, (pet food manufacturer). Also, recent developments in town include the expansion of the Norwalk River Valley Trail, a multi-use trail that is designed to eventually run between Norwalk and Danbury.
