The Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum, located in Wethersfield, Connecticut, is owned and operated by The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in Connecticut.

The first two houses are listed as National Historic Landmarks and the last home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Connecticut. The houses are next door to each other.The Joseph Webb House is the museum's main headquarters and has been restored to a late 18th-century appearance. There is a Colonial Revival garden out back and a 19th-century barn. The Silas Deane House has been restored to a mid-18th century appearance. The Isaac Stevens House has been restored to reflect a middle-class family of the 1820s-1830s using many original family items.The Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum also manages the nearby 1715 Buttolph-Williams House which is owned by Connecticut Landmarks. The interior features rare 17th and early 18th century antiques and was the setting for Elizabeth George Speare’s Newbery Medal-winning novel The Witch of Blackbird Pond (1958).

  • Had an awesome candlelight Christmas tour! Highly recommend it! Learned so much about the big history of this little town!
  • Went for a tour as a possible wedding facility. MAX 135 persons. Too small for us but was a nice place and they lady in charge of rentals was very nice.
  • This is a small museum and gift shop attached to the Webb House. Wethersfield is a treasure trove of history. It's worth the fee to tour the houses.
  • Nice flowers and a nice place for a wedding outside and inside the barn.
  • I was at a wedding here and I really was taken by how beautiful it is. Nice and private, beautiful barn, highly recommended!
