Weir Farm National Historic Site
In 1882, American impressionist painter J. Alden Weir ended his search for a rural retreat by purchasing this hilly countryside estate for $10 and a painting. Located in Ridgefield and Wilton, Connecticut, the Weir Farm hosted numerous artists over the years who produced a large number of paintings depicting the surrounding landscape. Weir's daughter Dorothy, an artist herself, took over management of the property after his death in 1919. In 1931 she married the sculptor Mahonri Young who would build a second studio on the property. Artist Sperry Andrews befriended Mahonri Young and stayed on the Farm many years while painting. Following Mahonri's death, Sperry purchased the property and his wife Doris Andrews worked with Cora Weir Burlingham to preserve the Weir Farm, which eventually resulted in the U.S. government designation as a historic site in 1990. Today Weir Farm is one of only two sites in the National Park Service dedicated to the visual arts and over the years it has maintained an artists-in-residence program with over 150 artists participating.
