Weir Farm National Historical Park

Located in Wilton, CT, Weir Farm National Historical Park includes over 60 acres of beautiful woods, waterways, and fields. The park's main attractions are the home and studios of the beloved American Impressionist artist J. Alden Weir. Weir called this the "Great Good Place," and it's easy to see why as it was home to three generations of American artists. Today, it stands as one of the last remaining landscapes of American art and historic preservation. By taking a self-guided tour of the grounds, you'll get to enjoy the Weir and Young Studios, gardens, Weir Pond, and multiple barns.

Things To Do Near Weir Farm National Historical Park

While there is currently no accommodation in the parking lot for buses, RVs, and other large vehicles, RVers can reach out to determine local camping spots or places to park when you visit. If you have a younger child, you might consider having them spend a half-day at the Weir Farm site. They can join the Junior Ranger program and complete activities to get a badge and then a patch. The park is also known for its Take Part in Art program, which lets visitors indulge their inner artists. This is a fun way to connect to the legacy of Weir Farm; you can have your children sit down to capture the scenery that's around them the way thousands of painters did for over 130 years.
