A HOUSE DIVIDED
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.
