If either of these theories holds water, then Wilton must have ghosts in spades. The town is built on an enormous quartz formation, and it has enough tragic history to put many other ghostly hot spots to shame. To trace the paranormal events that have occurred in this town, we first have to go way back to the late 18th century. In 1773, the residents of Wilton determined they were in need of a new meetinghouse. In April of that year, the town voted to provide six barrels of rum, a barrel of brown sugar, half a box of lemons and two loaves of sugar in order to fortify the men who would be raising the building.
At times the souls of those who have yet to pass can still be seen wandering during the late hours of the night. Many still seeking to fulfill a purpose not completed during their lifetimes.
