Had an excellent weekend away visiting Old Wethersfield for the first time. We wanted a historic place where we could do a lot of walking and this place is perfect. Friendly town, well maintained sidewalks and paths, and every home seemed to have a beautiful garden to admire. Great opportunities to explore several decades of history.

Great area to walk, browse. Good restaurants and ice cream. Very historic. We frequent the area on bicycle and walking. Great place to live or visit.

I grew up here, so to me it's nothing special. Small town, not many shops but a couple of the houses charge admission for a tour. The cove area's probably the most scenic spot with the old barn that's never open (although it's supposed to be). If you want to see a great old town, go to Deerfield MA instead... More

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
