the Town of Wilton, which has been a center of agriculture, commerce and industry since 1803. Wilton's town history is rich and varied. The original white settlers traveled up the Kennebec River to make the area into a farming community. These original settlers cut trees to build farmhouses and barns. Sheep were raised for meat and wool. Apples and dairy products soon became important cash crops. One of the earliest farms, the Hall Farm, which is in its 8th generation as a family farm, currently produces milk and maple products. The water power of Wilson Stream powered the Wilton Woolen Mill, the town's first shoe shop, and a tannery. Main Street grew to support a variety of shops, businesses and churches and Wilton Academy. After a devastating fire, the town was rebuilt and in 1905 became home to the Bass Shoe Company, which became the town's biggest employer. The plant has since been transformed into a restaurant, an art gallery and a medical transcription service, with more plans in the works. Life in Wilton is typical of other small towns in America that have a strong sense of community, with shared values and relationships among its citizens. School tournaments, scouting events, extension meetings, celebrations, suppers, worship services and events sponsored by its fraternal organizations are an integral part of the town's history. The town is one of those thousand points of light former President Bush referred to during his presidency, a phrase worth repeating again to underscore the strength and support for American values reflected in towns like Wilton for 200 years. We send our congratulations and best wishes to the good citizens and friends of the Town of Wilton as they celebrate the town's 200th Birthday; (HLS 807)
