Shelton Historical Society

The early 19th-century Brownson House is an example of late-Federal/early Greek Revival architecture. The 1872 Trap Falls School is the last surviving one-room school in Shelton. The mid-19th-century Wilson Barn houses a permanent exhibit entitled "Three Centuries of Shelton, From Farming to Industry and Beyond," which traces Shelton's development from early European settlement through the 20th century.
