Travel Guide

Wethersfield which includes a lake or waterhole as well as a family

Experience history coming to life in this compact neighborhood full of beautifully preserved buildings from different eras of America’s eventful past.

The town of Wethersfield is one of the historic highlights of Connecticut. Head away from the state’s alluring coastline to its lively capital city of Hartford. Wethersfield lies in the outskirts and offers an enthralling journey through America’s history, as well as lively community events and fun family attractions.

Travel back to the pre-revolutionary era in one of the largest historic districts in the state. About 50 of the houses in Wethersfield were built before the Revolutionary War. Hundreds of homes from before and after the Civil War show the various styles of architecture from different points in America’s history.

Follow the Wethersfield Heritage Walk to get a sense of the town’s rich history. Stroll down Main Street and pass traditional storefronts for businesses selling artworks, antiques and handicrafts. The First Church is an elegant building that has stood here since 1764.

Trace the story of the nation in the town’s museums. The Wethersfield Museum, hosted in the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center, focuses on the town’s history. The museum sheds light on the ordinary lives of Wethersfield’s residents throughout its almost 400-year history. The Hurlbut-Dunham House Museum features stunning examples of 20th-century decorative arts, while the Webb Deane Stevens Museum recreates life in the 18th century.

The town also has several green spaces where you can relax between seeing the sights. Lie back on the banks of Wethersfield Cove, the home of the Cove Warehouse Maritime Museum and several acres of parkland. Broad Street Green is marked by the colorful array of tall trees and stately homes around its edges.

Mingle with locals at the Thursday Wethersfield Farmers Market. This welcoming community event features fresh produce vendors and live music performances.

Come at any time of year to enjoy Wethersfield’s range of indoor and outdoor attractions. The neighborhood is located just 10 minutes away from Hartford’s city center and airport by car. Once here, explore the district on foot to appreciate the old-world atmosphere of this historic destination.
