A very relaxing and beautiful place. There are a few historic homes and museums to see. The general store was great for local Connecticut products. The green was beautiful. All the old homes were immaculately kept and beautiful. We will be back!

Old Wethersfield is full of history from its historic museums to all the historic homes dating to the 18th century. Take the time to visit the signs on the heritage trail which will tell you the history of the area.

Every time I come here is see every bit of character of the past. It's so quaint and quiet, a true little treasure that has a story that comes with it. If you get a chance take a little trip here.
