Our Historic Building:   Library - Town of Wilton, NH

 

Designed by the Boston architectural firm of McLean & Wright, the library building is a superb example of the Neoclassical style prevalent among monumental architecture between 1900 to 1920.

 

Occulus in the rotunda- photo by Rebecca BrownAt a Special Town Meeting, held December 11, 1907, the townspeople of Wilton accepted the gift of the Hon. David A. Gregg (1840-1928) of the land and building known as the Gregg Free Library. According to Gregg's wishes, the library building and land is owned by the Town of Wilton, but controlled and managed by a Board of Trustees. In a "Deed of Gift”, Gregg asks that the building be used only as a public library and for the preservation of historical articles and other purposes of the library. In 1912, the Hon. David A. Gregg, showing his continued interest in Wilton and the library, gave to the town an endowment of $25,000.00 to be maintained and managed by the Board of Trustees. Through the years many other generous endowment funds and gifts have been donated to the library with supplemental appropriations by the Town of Wilton.
