Wethersfield Heritage Commission

The Tourism Commission and the Committee on Culture and the Arts were combined to form the Wethersfield Heritage Commission, effective September 1, 2018.

The Wethersfield Heritage Commission was established:

  1. to develop, recommend and coordinate proposals and programs and methods to assist, initiate, encourage and sponsor activities in all fields of culture and the arts for Wethersfield; and
  2. to strengthen the local visitor experience, promote business development in Wethersfield, enhance tourism opportunities, and enhance interpretive aspects of the community.

The commission works closely with the Historical Society, the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum, the Old Wethersfield Shopkeepers Association and other organizations interested in promoting the town to potential visitors.

The commission maintains a web site that can be viewed at historicwethersfield.org.


The commission consists of eleven regular members appointed by the Town Council.
