Weir Farm National Historic Site, Wilton

Weir Farm National Historic site was home to three generations of American artists. Julian Alden Weir, a leading figure in American art and the development of American Impressionism, acquired the farm in 1882. After Weir, the artistic legacy was continued by his daughter, painter Dorothy Weir Young and her husband, sculptor Mahonri Young, followed by New England artists Sperry and Doris Andrews. Today, the 60-acre park, which includes the Weir House, Weir and Young Studios, barns, gardens, and Weir Pond, is one of the nation's finest remaining landscapes of American art.

  • Very neat experience! I have recently made it a goal to visit numerous national parks and sites! This one was unique being the home of Weir an American impressionist painter! They had free art supplies to borrow and use during your stay. There were tours of the home and art studios you could sign up for! There is also a pond to walk around (very quick walk) and to sit and create art! I had a great time with an old friend!
