Wethersfield's historic district rivals Deerfield, Massachusetts, for its variety and loveliness. Its wide, sycamore-lush streets and brick walks are lined with old houses, churches, and public buildings, and an ancient burying ground.
The Wethersfield Farmers’ Market is located on the beautiful grounds of the Solomon Welles House overlooking Cove Park. Visitors to the market may stroll the lawn down to "The Long Tidal River" where Thomas Deming built his shipyard on the banks of this natural harbor, and launched the Tryall, the first ship made in Connecticut, in 1649.
The charming Wethersfield Trolley will carry you the two minute ride, free of charge, from the market to the heart of Old Wethersfield where you can explore the historic district, visit museums and gardens, shops and local eateries.
