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

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.
