The Wilton Historical Society Map Collection contains maps and atlases of Wilton and Fairfield County, Connecticut, in addition to local blueprints, plans, charts, and lists of cartographical interest. The collection as a whole provides snapshots of Wilton since the 1700s, mapping Wilton businesses, homes, residents, and place names, showing developments in transportation, environment, and economy, and reflecting continuity and change in local cultures. The oldest dated items are photocopies, tracings, or drawings of originals; the earliest originals are from the mid- to late 1700s. The latest additions are from the end of the twentieth century.
The Wilton Historical Society Neighborhoods and Old Houses Collection contains draft survey forms, index photographs, research notes, and other documentation relating (for houses) to date of construction, ownership history, major renovations, and relocations, and (for neighborhoods) dates of settlement, the names of founding and notable residents, prevailing economic activities and local businesses, the origins of local names, and the history of local roads. The information available for individual houses and neighborhoods varies widely. The earliest items date to the 1730s, but the bulk of the collection is mid- to late twentieth century.
