Description of City/Town

The chief manufacturies at Wilton village are the Furnel woolen factories, a superior flour-mill, the Wilton Cheese Factory, and a tannery. The manufactures are furniture, leather, boots, cloths (meltons, cassimeres and repellants), shingles, boards, scythe-sharpeners, potash, flour and meal, canned corn (2 factories), etc. Wilton Village...occupies the bottom and side of a picturesque valley, with a wild wood on the opposite hillside; and between this and the principal street for a fourth of a mile rushes Wilson’s Stream, which furnishes the power of both villages….In a commanding position stands the noble building of Wilton Academy.
