Walter R. T. Smith is one of the most prestigious building preservation experts in Wilton. He has done a lot of projects with Wilton Historical Society to preserve Wilton’s antique houses and historical buildings. And this house is one of them. When he got the permission of removal of 1815 built house (one of the oldest house of Wilton), he carefully dismentled the house and moved it to his property on 18 Forest lane where he rebuilt as his home in 1990.
So the house has its history of two centuries 1800's and late 1900's , yet all in brand new foundation with new systems.
