Wethersfield, the oldest permanent English settlement in Connecticut, enjoys a rich historic heritage. From the small group of people who came in 1634, the Town has grown to an estimated population of 23,000. Here is the local town history from 1600-1965.
Books and published materials about local history are scarce and hard to obtain for study purposes. Our Committee started to write brief monographs to give the students and teachers some information about the people for whom our schools are named and about the Indians who lived in this area. From that small beginning this book developed.
