Town Hall Gallery Grand Opening

Grand Opening - Town Hall Gallery
Posted on 12/13/2018

On Monday December 17th from 5:30-6:30 p.m. we will have a reception to open the new Town Hall Gallery exhibition. The show includes eight framed photos from the Wilton Historical Society's collection showing views of the Whiting House Hotel that originally stood on the site of Town Hall (before the hotel burned in a December 1874 fire), scenes of the aftermath of the fire, and pictures of the new Town Hall (built in 1886) including vintage interior shots of the theater. The Wilton Town Hall was listed on the National Register of Historical Places in 2009.

 The Wilton Heritage Commission curated the display, with thanks to the Historical Society for providing the photos and to the greater Wilton arts community for upcoming fine arts shows.  The Heritage Commission plans to change the display quarterly and will alternate historic photos with fine arts shows.

 Light refreshments will be served at Town Hall from 5:30 p.m. to shortly before the Select Board meeting and Wanda contest grand-prize drawing.  Guests will be invited to suggest subjects for future photographic essays.  All are welcome to attend.
