Hartford Connecticut Region MapFounded in 1633–34 by a group of Puritans led by John Oldham, Wethersfield has its niche in history, being “Ye Most Auncient Towne” in Connecticut, as set out by the Code of 1650 — “Colonial Records of Connecticut.” Four witch trials and three executions for witchcraft occurred in the town in the 17th century. Mary Johnson was convicted of witchcraft and executed in 1648, Joan and John Carrington in 1651. Landowner Katherine Harrison was convicted, and although her conviction was reversed, she was banished and her property seized by her neighbors.

Silas Deane, commissioner to France during the American Revolutionary War, lived in the town. His house is now part of the Webb Deane Stevens Museum. In May 1781, at the Webb House on Main Street, General George Washington and French Lt. Gen. Rochambeau planned the battle of Yorktown, which culminated in the independence of the then rebellious colonies.

The Wethersfield Volunteer Fire Department was chartered by the Connecticut Legislature on May 12, 1803, making it the first formally chartered fire department in Connecticut, and is believed to be one of the oldest chartered volunteer fire departments in continuous existence in the United States.
