A HOUSE DI­VIDED

Old House Journal - - My Neighborhood -

Built ca. 1735 by de­scen­dants of one of Wethers­field’s 1634 founders, the Chester Tav­ern is also known for its con­nec­tion to Col. John Chester, who fought hero­ically at the Bat­tle of Bunker Hill. Lo­cal lore has it that de­scen­dants, too, may have fought: the house was split, and the north half moved around the cor­ner. The half shown re­mains on its orig­i­nal site; both are now pri­vate homes.
