Went during the Holiday season, decorated for the period. it was quite lovely. If you go in warmer weather they have beautiful gardens with lots of heritage specimens.

We came for the candlelight tour as an outing for my husband's birthday in December. Wonderful treats to eat, each house was beautifully decorated and the docents were enthusiastic! And their LED flickering candles were wonderful!

Over the river and through some woods to the Webb Deane Stevens Museum decked out for the holidays. They are exhibiting the houses decorated as they would have been over three different centuries so not only did we learn about local historical dignitaries but we got a glimpse into holidays of times past. Our tour guide, Howard, was awesome. He... More

I always bring out-of-town guests to Old Wethersfield. The Webb/Deane/Stevens Houses and Museum is particularly impressive over Memorial Day Weekend when there is a Revolutionary War Encampment of soldiers on the grounds and walking along Main Street in front of one of the houses. History buffs will enjoy an afternoon in Old Wethersfield. Plan a visit on an Autumn Day... More

On Memorial Weekend their is a Revoluntary War Soldiers Encampment on the grounds of the museum. It is an awesome sight to see one or two soldiers walking down Old Wethersfield in front of one of these houses. The museum is interesting to visit and get a sense of history 200 years later. Worth a trip for history buffs.

This museum is an example of outstanding research and restoration. There were only two of us on the tour, so we benefitted from a knowledgeable guide and her uninterrupted attention. She also handled our questions very well. I never knew that our first president, George Washington, stayed in Wethersfield. A highlight of the tour is a visit to the bedroom... More

A very educational and interesting museum. Learned some new things about those that shaped our nation. Our own personal tour guide Elizabeth was exceptional.

The three houses have been beautifully preserved, each from a different era--Colonial to Victorian. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and gives the family history of each house. The museum shop has beautiful items you won't see everywhere. The Victorian home was beautifully decorated for Christmas.

My wife and I were the only ones on a tour on a Saturday morning in December. The houses were decorated for Christmas to make things a little more interesting. The tour actually covers three houses, the Joseph Webb house, the Silas Deane house and the Isaac Stevens house. George Washington actually did sleep in the Webb house for several... More

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