Weir Farm National Historic Site is located in Ridgefield and Wilton. Connecticut's only national park, it preserves, largely intact, the house, studio, farm buildings and landscape that were integral to Weir's artistic vision. The site was also a gathering place for Weir's associates, which included other leading American artists who depicted the Weir Farm landscape in their work. The farm has been used continuously by artists since the 19th Century, most notably by the recognized Mormon sculptor, Mahonri Young, whose studio is preserved at the site.

The website for Weir Farm National Historic Site contains biographies of artists who lived and visited the property.
