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!

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.
