Old marker found during repair work

WILTON – An old granite road marker pointing the way to “Peterboro” was found recently by members of the Wilton Highway Department while they were repairing a culvert on Burns Hill Road near Sand Hill Road.

The granite slab had been used in a previous rebuilding of the culvert.

Public Works Director Steve Elliott said it was “probably done in the ’60s. That piece of granite looked like a good thing to use, nice and square.”

Elliott said he would try to find out where the marker originally stood and return it.
