Windsor is the oldest town in CT settled in 1633. Wethersfield follows as it was settled in 1634. Wethersfield still wants to believe otherwise.

It was less than $20 per person for the tour of this house. I would recommend it to all CT residents, you learn so much about our history.

I recently moved to Wethersfield and I take everyone who visits to the Webb Deane Stevens museum. So far, I've learned new things each time I visit. If you're in a rush, you can just tour the house that George Washington stayed in and planned the Battle of Yorktown. If you are interested in history, I recommend touring all three... More

Everyone in the area should visit this museum..Connecticut should be very proud of its role in history and this is the place to turn back the clock..Not only for history buffs but a place for families and students to learn about its role in the American Revolutionary War..Who could pass up walking through the doors of a house George Washington...

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
