The One Town In Connecticut With More Historic Buildings Than Any Other

There’s no shortage of historic buildings in Connecticut – after all, like the rest of New England, we have a lengthy and storied past that dates back many years, and we’re lucky enough to have a great many buildings associated with our history that are still standing today. The oldest of all European-settled towns in Connecticut is Wethersfield, and it has a remarkable number of pre-Civil War era homes and buildings that have been preserved. The town was founded around 1633, and the historic district of Old Wethersfield is the largest historic district in Connecticut. More than 1,100 buildings from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries are spread out over two square miles. Walking through here feels like a step back in time, almost like a living history museum!
