Back by popular demand, Weir Farm National Historic Site is offering Stone Wall Tours during our first ever Stone Wall Week! Even better than Shark Week, Stone Wall Week provides visitors the opportunity to learn more about the park’s historic stone walls during special guided hikes every day.
Join Park Ranger Joe Trapani on a ramble through the fields of Weir Farm National Historic Site to examine the three different types of stone walls on the property and learn about their rich history. The stone walls not only provide an opportunity to explore New England’s geologic and cultural past, but they have also served as a source of inspiration to the artists that have lived and visited here for over 135 years. Join us for a tour during Stone Wall Week, then stick around and create a sketch or painting with our free-to-use supplies!
Tours will be offered daily at 10:00 am Wednesday October 25th through Sunday October 29th. No registration is required, but parking is limited, so please carpool if possible.
Location: Weir Farm National Historic Site, 735 Nod Hill Road, Wilton, CT 06897. Meet outside of the visitor center at 10:00 am.
