COMMUNITY

In Wolcott, everything is within walking distance from your front porch. A beautiful town park and community center, library, churches, grade school, businesses and so much more. The town's Historical Wolcott House is a great place to meet or hold a reception. It's also the center of our yearly Summer Celebration on the 4th of July. This event draws a huge crowd of people to the best small town fair and fireworks display in the state.
