Our Town

Wethersfield Cove in the WinterWethersfield is located in central Connecticut, immediately south of the State Capital of Hartford, on the west bank of the Connecticut River. It is bounded on the north by Hartford, on the east by the Connecticut River and Glastonbury, on the south by Rocky Hill and by Newington on the west.

Located in historic Wethersfield, Connecticut, the Wethersfield Public School system encompasses seven schools and approximately 3,800 students in Kindergarten through grade 12. 

Wethersfield, founded in 1633–34, has its niche in history, being "Ye Most Auncient Towne" in Connecticut, as set out by the Code of 1650 — "Colonial Records of Connecticut." Here in May 1781, at the Webb House on Main Street, Washington and Rochambeau planned the battle of Yorktown, which culminated in the independence of the then rebellious colonies.

Over one hundred fifty of our old, beautiful and distinctive Colonial homes stand as a symbol of the rich heritage which has been Wethersfield's since the early days of its founding more than 350 years ago.
