About Wallingford, CT

The town of Wallingford was established on May 12, 1670. In the 1800s, Wallingfords industry expanded primarily with small pewter and Britannia ware manufacturers. By mid-century, Robert Wallace acquired the formula for nickel silver and established with Samuel Simpson, R. Wallace & Company the forerunner of Wallace Silversmiths. Later during this period many of the small silver and Britannia plants combined to form the International Silver Company with its headquarters in Meriden and several plants in Wallingford. Wallingford covers 39.8 square miles and is the 23rd most populous community of Connecticuts 169 cities and towns.
