Visit The Historic Spot In Connecticut Where George Washington Spent The Night
Few figures in American history are as famous as George Washington. He’s such a figurehead of his time that he’s come to represent a symbol of democracy and the country itself, and places that he frequented are considered valuable historical landmarks. We know that Washington was in Connecticut pretty regularly during his lifetime, but unfortunately, many of the specific locations have been lost to time. No one in 1776 could have predicted that 200 years later we’d care where the founding fathers ate their suppers or rested their heads, so it’s not surprising that records are fairly vague. However, we do have record of one specific spot where Washington spent the night in the Nutmeg State – several nights, actually! In 1781, George Washington spent a few nights at the Webb House in Wethersfield. The historic home is still standing today and is part of the wonderful Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum.
