Important Information for Future Renters
Wethersfield is known as "Ye Most Auncient Towne" in the state because it was founded in 1633.
George Washington and French commander-in-chief Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau planned the Battle of Yorktown in Wethersfield at the Webb House on Main Street in 1781. The Webb-Dean-Stevens Museum in town commemorates this piece of history. The battle was the last of the war.
As an old and historic community, there are many beautiful architectural homes from Colonial days that residents can still see around town.
