Throughout history, people of Wilton-Native Americans; early settlers of the hamlets of Wiltonville, Stiles Corner, and Gurn Spring; and current residents-all have shared a common love of this eastern New York State place, located just north of Saratoga Springs. Wilton captures the high points of the town's history, including the Battle of Wilton in February 1693, and Mount McGregor, famous for its grand hotel built in 1884 and for a cottage where, in 1885, President Ulysses S. Grant finished his memoirs shortly before his death. It also features the mineral spring water that was bottled and marketed in the early 1900s, and a farm with forty thousand turkeys.
