We took a nice day trip to Old Wethersfield ,
Connecticut today . It's the oldest settled
town in Connecticut ( 1634 ) .
One of the oldest houses is from the 1600s .
This red house below is just one of the many
beautiful historic homes from the 1700s on
Main Street , Old Wethersfield .
This is me standing in front of another historic house
on Main Street . I liked the old fence and and the
pretty wreath on the door .
My husband and I took a ride around town
in this horse drawn carriage from the 1700s .
The inside was really neat , all lined in
a pretty antique printed paper and it had lace
and ball fringe curtains . It had very delicate looking wooden doors with old glass .The driver told us he's
been driving this carriage for 18 years .
He told us it's the same carriage that was in the
movie Amistad & that
both rode in this carriage . Pretty neat !

Some neat shops & cafes on Main Street .
Some stores , such as the deli and the ice cream
parlor were closed for the season . It was very cold today
so the town was a little quiet . The Tea Room seemed to
be the hot spot in town , today anyway .
A very old seed store from the 1700s . All of the drawers behind the counter are filled with seeds from various plants .
