There are an exceptional number of historic homes in this charming village. Two homes of historical significance during the revolutionary war period can be toured in the warm season. There are great places to dine and cute shops to explore. There is also a lovely cove that served as a shipbuilding area in the 1700's and now is home to... More

Wethersfield's Historic Center is small and charming. It's a pass through on your way to somewhere else. If you're interested in history you will enjoy a couple of hours walking Main Street and visiting the circa houses and old cemetery.

Wethersfield is the most ancient town in the state, with roots dating back to the 1600s. There have been historic battles here, George Washington has slept here, worshiped here and met with Rochambeau to plan the battle of Yorktown. Revolutionary troops gathered on the Broad Street Green in preparation for battle during the Revolutionary War. Many of the houses are... More

This quaint little gem of a town at Exit 26 off of Interstate 91 is a "do not miss"! Charming places to eat and great shops with unique stuff. Great place to stop between Boston and New York. I love the tree lined streets in the Village of Old Wethersfield. Don't miss Main Street Creamery....delicious ice cream and reason enough... More

Beautiful place to stroll, have lunch or dinner, see the gorgeous homes, visit the cove and watch the boaters, take pictures of the museum barn, or try the creamery ice cream shop!

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

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.
