Weir Farm National Historic Park
There is something very special about spending time in a national park. I was lucky to have worked and lived in Yellowstone for a summer during college and hope to do that again in a few years. That was the beginning of my love of national parks. I was excited to learn that we have our very own and very accessible National Historic Park (formally a National Historic Site) right here in Wilton and Ridgefield. So while my feet are still here in Brookfield, I have the opportunity and pleasure to volunteer at Weir Farm National Historic Park. This park is a 60 acre piece of property that was the home, work place, and rural retreat of American Impressionist painter, J. Alden Weir in the latter part of the 19th century. The property continued to be used by subsequent generations of word class artists and was established as a National Historic Site in 1990.
