Wethersfield CT Town Information


Wethersfield Connecticut was founded in 1634 by a group of Puritans led by John Oldham. Wethersfield CT is the second-oldest town in Connecticut after Windsor. Although Windsor was founded in 1633, it operated as a trading post and became a settlement slightly after Wethersfield. Thus Wethersfield CT can claim the title of oldest settlement, while Windsor can claim the title of oldest town.

Wethersfield has 626.92 acres of parkland with unique areas such as Wintergreen Woods, Wethersfield Cove and the 1860 Reservoir where open space, wooded areas and natural ponds make Wethersfield a beautiful and special place to live.
