We have friends who live in Old Wethersfield, so when we come to town we stay with them. I love all the beautiful, historic homes, and driving by the green on Broad Street, and enjoying the quaint shops. It's a wonderful place to visit.

Old Wethersfield is full of gorgeous old homes, tree-lined streets and parks, historical museums and an old cemetery. It has lovely restaurants, a wonderful country store and a resident turkey named Kevin. It is surely worth a visit any time of the year!

You can walk around all of "Old Wethersfield" and enjoy the stroll. You have the opportunity to see where George Washington slept (it seems he does get around). There are many historic houses, a historic cemetery, and historic church. The Historical Society has information notes...More
