We were in Wethersfield researching my family tree and decided to visit these historic homes. Our guide was very knowledgeable and patiently answered all of our questions. It gave us a good feel for what life was like in this town in the 1700's. Well worth the price of admission to see these homes!

Lots of great information, especially if you like Civil War History and antiques. It was great to see three houses to compare socioeconomic differences and the effects of history. Well priced also!

Wethersfield preserves its memories to share with visitors (and has a gift shop for restless children). Remember to enjoy the gardens of established perennial beds and substantial trees throughout town.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the families who built these homes and the roles they played in helping to form our country. The three homes are side by side and furnished simply but with an eye towards historical accuracy. Conveniently located downtown, directly across from Lucky Lou's Restaurant. Beautiful town with a great deal of historical significance.

A 'follower of presidents,' I was drawn to this museum because Washington visited here to meet with Rochambeau to plan the Yorktown offensive against Cornwallis in 1781. Earlier, another future president, John Adams, was entertained at the Deane house. I was privileged to have one of their fine docents, Phil, guide me through these three jewels of colonial architecture. The... More

I had been to the Webb Deane Stevens Museum over the summer. It was a nice tour, but nowhere as entertaining as the "Witchcraft and Tombstones" Tour that I joined in on Saturday, October 20th. And what a beautiful day it was. It had to be about 70 degrees, with the perfect amount of sun and wind. Could not have... More

The three houses are authentic and well preserved examples of 18th C American domestic architecture and all are furnished in period style. These are not reconstructions but the real thing! See them.

Part of four historical museum buildings to visit while in the town of Old Wethersfield, this tour should be on your 'must do' list. In other words you will want to plan a day or weekend here to see into its historical past. Wethersfield is post card beautiful with tree-lined streets, lanes and many quaint buildings in the area to... More
