KMS Partners LLC, is an exclusive partnership within the
Coldwell Banker Westport-Riverside real estate office.

Despite recent growth, Weston remains one of Fairfield County’s smallest and most rural towns.
But it’s got plenty of history. As well as one of the most active and intriguing historical societies around.
The Coley Homestead on 104 Weston Road dates back to the early 19th century. It’s exactly the type of old, handsome structure you’d expect the Weston Historical Society to call home.
A nearby barn is filled with farmers’ tools. It’s a fascinating look back. It’s also unheated, so it’s closed in winter.
A new building houses a gallery. The Weston Historical Society is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1-4 p.m., and by appointment too. You’re welcome to enjoy the 4-acre grounds any time.
Programming though is where the WHS really shines.
This Saturday, for example (September 26, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.) there’s a Civil War Encampment. Re-enactors include a doctor, and a photographer dressed in period garb who will take sepia-toned photographs. Cooking demonstrations, musket firing and more complete the day. The Civil War exhibit — with, of course, an emphasis on Weston — remains up through October 25.
Next month brings both an Oktoberfest (October 17) and Halloween “Scare Fair” (October 24). There’s also an exhibit and talk (October 14, 7-9:30 p.m.) about Chinese exports, with an emphasis on cider jugs. Don’t worry about getting thirsty. Hard cider — and wine — will be on hand.
In December, the Weston Historical Society sponsors a holiday party, with wreath-making and a photo opportunity with Santa and his elves.
Sure, Weston is growing. But as it looks forward, the Historical Society makes sure no one forgets the past.
