I want to share a secret with you. Wilton, Connecticut is home to Weir Farm. Weir Farm National Historic Site, the only National Park Service site dedicated to American painting, was home to three generations of artists including Julian Alden Weir, a leading figure in American art and the development of American Impressionism. Today, the 60-acre farm, 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.
