ANTIQUE CONNECTICUT POTTERY
The Wilton Historical Society Collection

   In Federal times, and up to the 1830s, Norwalk was a center for the handcrafting of inexpensive slipped redware. Before the onset of mass-produced plates and platters, Norwalk redware was sold everywhere in New England. The Wilton Historical Society has perhaps the largest collection of Norwalk redware in public hands today.  The collection is on exhibit at the Wilton Heritage Museum, in the barn connecting the Botts-Surgis-Blackmar House, built onsite in 1738, with the Fitch House, built in 1772 and moved  ¼ mile downhill in 2002.

  What’s different about these house museums is that instead of being locked in one time period the individual rooms trace the changes in rural New England interiors from Colonial to Victorian times.
