Historic Walking Tour in Wilton

Back by popular demand, the Wilton Historical Society is partnering with the Wilton Congregational Church to host a walking tour of Hillside Cemetery by Bob Russell on October 5 from 11 am to 12 noon. 

Guests are invited to spend an hour with historian Bob Russell, as he shares his extensive knowledge about the many remarkable citizens who have found their final resting place there. The hour-long guided walk includes a brief history of the historic cemetery and the notable people buried there, including Revolutionary and Civil War veterans plus familiar names such as Olmstead, Middlebrook, and Comstock, dating back to the 1800s. Mr. Russell has added new stops on his tour, which will detail information about the Gregory and Marvin families, as well.

All are welcome to participate on this free walk. If you want to participate, meet Wilton Historian, Bob Russell at the flagpole at 10:30 a.m.  The Hillside Cemetery is located at 165 Ridgefield Road, Wilton, CT 06897.  To reserve a spot pam@wiltoncongregational.org or call 203-762-5591
