In 1961, the Connecticut State Legislature enabled local municipalities to establish historic districts, and, since October 1, 1984, historic properties by ordinance, and to establish commissions which review and approve or deny alterations, demolitions, or construction of buildings and other structures within their boundaries and are visible from a public street, way, or place.

Historic Districts and Historic Properties are defined as “areas, or clusters of related buildings, or objects and structures, in a compatible setting which visually express styles and modes of living representative of various periods in American History.”  The purpose of local Historic District or Historic Property designation is to preserve and protect buildings and places associated with the town’s history.

At a Wilton Town Meeting in 1963, an ordinance was adopted establishing Historic District #1.  Since then additional buildings were moved to the site, referred to as Lambert Corners, and the Board of Selectmen updated the ordinance establishing Historic District #1 in June 2005.

A Town Meeting in 1970 established Historic District #2: Wilton Congregational Church, Old Town Hall, and neighboring residences, Historic District #3: the Sloan-Raymond-Fitch House, and Historic District #4: Hurlbutt Street Schoolhouse.

At a Board of Selectmen meeting in June 2005, Historic District #5: the Wilton Historical Society Museum Complex was created.  Former Historic District #3, the Sloan-Raymond-Fitch House, was moved to this site and is now included in this district; therefore, #3 was removed. 

The members of the Board of Selectmen voted unanimously on April 4, 2007 to create Historic District #6: Georgetown Neighborhood of Church Street, West Church Street and Redding Road.  The ordinance to officially establish Historic District #6 was approved by the Board of Selectmen on May 21, 2007.
