You, I and the rest of the world may think that the Red Barn — the iconic restaurant opened in 1933, and operated continuously through last year — is located on Wilton Road, nestled up against Merritt Parkway Exit 41.
According to a state Department of Transportation poster currently hanging in Town Hall, offering facts, photos and a map of ongoing Merritt “enhancements,” the Red Barn is across the river, one exit away.
See? It’s right there, at northbound exit 42 on Weston Road!
Let’s hope the DOT is a bit more diligent with their actual “enhancement” work.
