Weir Farm National Historic Site, located in Wilton, is the only National Park Service site dedicated to American painting. The home housed three generations of American artists including Julian Alden Weir, a leading figure in the development of American Impressionism. The site offers free admission to the farm's 60-acres of grounds and the Burlingham House Visitor Center. Visitors can take a self-guided tour of the gardens using a brochure available in the visitor center, or bring your art supplies and become part of the Weir Farm artistic tradition. Currently the Weir House, Weir Studio and Young Studio are undergoing restoration and are closed to the public. The Burlingham House Visitor Center and park grounds remain open and available during regular hours.
