Stroll through the historic section of Wethersfield to view meticulously maintained private houses from the Revolutionary period and beyond. At the town's Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum, visitors can explore three 18th-century houses.
The 1752 Joseph Webb House, which served as George Washington's headquarters in May 1781, was later owned by artist and antiquarian Wallace Nutting. The Silas Deane House, circa 1770, was built for America's Revolutionary War diplomat to France as both his residence and as a base for his political aspirations. The 1789 Isaac Stevens House depicts the life of a middle class family in the 1820s and 1830s.
