The Wilton Historical Society
(David Potter, President) is located on the top floor of the Gregg Free & Wilton Public Library Building at 7 Forest Road in Wilton New Hampshire. The Historical Society Rooms, which house artifacts and displays on Wilton history, are open to the public on Thursdays between 1:30 PM and 5 PM, year-round.   The Town of Wilton and many generous friends of the Library recently funded a complete renovation of the rooms, and we urge you to visit us and see our splendid new digs!

 The Historical Society meets on the second Thursday of each month (except March, July and August) at 7 PM in the Historical Society Rooms. The public is welcome to attend.

Historical Research Assistance:  We welcome inquiries from the public on historic or genealogical matters relating to Wilton. Please feel free to contact us via e-mail at: We ask your patience; we are staffed solely by volunteers who generously give of their time to the society; while we try to answer inquiries promptly, it may sometimes take a while for someone to get back to you.

Historical Society on Skype: You can Skype us (audio only) most Thursdays when the rooms are open; our Skype address is: wilton.historical.society

The Wilton Heritage Commission
 (Stanley Young, Chair) was established by the town to identify and protect Wilton's historically and culturally significant sites and buildings through consultation with other town agencies as well as private citizens who wish to preserve these special resources. The Commission meets every fourth Tuesday of the month at 7 PM in the Historical Society rooms in the Library; these meetings are open to the public and we welcome your participation in our work.

The Heritage Commission and the Historical Society are grateful to the staff at the Gregg Free and Wilton Public Library for providing us with space on their website as well as their generous gifts of time and support in our endeavors.
