Wilton Small Business Spreads Joy, Preserves History

Sen. Toni Boucher and Sen. Tony Hwang on Dec. 18 visited The Historical Christmas Barn at Lambert House in Wilton to commend the family-owned business on its role in historic preservation and spurring the local economy.

“It is wonderful to have such a historic building preserved and used to provide the most beautiful array of Christmas decorations and ornaments in the region. The quantity and quality of holiday decorations are a feast for the eyes and they are housed in Wilton’s 300-year old Lambert house,” Sen. Boucher said. “The Christmas Barn in Wilton is acting as a great steward for our town’s oldest building. It is small businesses like this one, owned by Jennifer and Gregory Bean, that drive our economy in the right direction.”

“The holiday spirit is very much alive in Fairfield County,” Sen. Hwang said. “We wanted to draw attention to this wonderful small business, which really is a must-see destination not only during the holidays, but year-round. The Beans are community-minded entrepreneurs who put great value in preserving Connecticut’s history and heritage. Sen. Boucher and I very much appreciated the tour and we got some shopping done in the process.”

The Christmas Barn, located 150 Danbury Road in Wilton, is open year-round and sells a variety of hard to find collectables. It is a great place for a family to visit, especially during the holidays. The shop is located with several other beautifully restored antique buildings, and features special events throughout the year. On the web: .
