Booked both guided tours the same day, not a large group, just the right size. The first tour was of a few historic houses and the cemetery. The guides were great, learned a lot about witches hung in CT (Salem, MA gets all the press about this), had no idea. The cemetery here was very historic. The streets around our... More

Peaceful, Serene, restful, quiet, a fabulous break from the hectic life. Town is beautifully restored. Awesome Colonial architecture, pavers, and pet friendly everywhere.

Old Wethersfield is extremely picturesque with a nice touch of old-fashioned. This is a lovely part of town with benches along the streets, great restaurants and a fabulous ice cream parlor. My husband and I always take a trip to Old Wethersfield when we just want to relax and enjoy the beauty of New England.

The small town of Wethersfield has been preserved practically in total. As you walk down its Main Street there are several interesting 17th,18th,and 19th century buildings to visit. As well as a Museum. Fun to discover its history and what it has to offer.

What a fabulous array of architecture--17th, 18th and 19th Century homes, some now museums but many, many still family homes in great shape. Places well marked where major events in the Revolutionary War took place. First Church, where George Washington attended church 3 times!

We were lucky enough to visit during the Comstock Ferre festival this past weekend. The town was bustling with people for this wonderful event. Everyone was so friendly! Easy to park, and great to walk around and see the preserved homes.

Visiting Old Wethersfield is an experience in and of itself: come here and be prepared to be teleported to the 1700s.

I grew up in Wethersfield, and you really cant find a much more qunntessential beautiful New England town. Its on the river, with Wetherfield Cove, a runnoff of the CT River, adding to the beauty and centerpiece of Old Weathersfield. There is plenty here for history buffs, beautiful old homes (most of which you can tour), churches and the town... More

Its wonderful to walk around Old Wethersfield, stop for a bite to eat, wander through the Ancient Burial grounds and visit Cove Park. Particuarly beautiful in summer and fall.

Who would guess that an old fashioned Main St. still exists so close to a busy city? Ardently protected by town zoning, this area is close to the Connecticut River. Be sure to visit the Keeney Cultural Center for local exhibits and walk over to the Broad St. green for its collection of trees. Several bistros offer simple fare (a... More
