Free Events at Wilton's Weir Farm

The 60-acre Weir Farm National Historic Site in Wilton offers free ranger-led tours and public programs year-round. Originally owned by American Impressionist Julian Alden Weir in 1882, the farm has served as an inspiration to generations of artists.

You too, can be an artist at "Take Part in Art," held Thursdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through April 2010. Chalk pastels, graphite, and colored pencils will be available to visitors to use for free.

On Saturday February 20, March 13 or April 10, bring your kids grades K-4 for a story read aloud by a ranger in the historic barn. Monthly on Saturdays, registration required.

The site also offers free guided walks and tours explore the landscape and history of the farm. See Weir Farm's schedule for details.
