Weir Farm National Historic Site featured 52nd in National Park Quarter Series

Weir Farm and Studio

Straddling Wilton and Ridgefield, Connecticut, the Weir Farm National Historic Site is a 68-acre cultural landscape established in 1990. Its manmade panorama features 15 historic structures, including houses, barns, studios and outbuildings. Its natural landscape is characterized by bedrock outcroppings, historic gardens, stone terraces, specimen trees, orchards, fields, miles of stone laid walls and a pond. Best of all, it has hundreds of historic painting sites – all expertly preserved. The artistic tradition launched here by American impressionist painter Julian Alden Weir in 1882 is kept alive through a variety of Art in the Park programs, including an artist-in-residence program, free art supplies, night painting and art lessons.
