Welcome to Thursday Doors, a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world.

A few weeks ago, I was diverted by construction, and I ended up back in Old Wethersfield, Connecticut. Some of you may recall we spent several weeks here back in January and February. Wethersfield is one of two towns that claim to be Connecticut’s first town. Both Wethersfield and Windsor were settled in 1633. I missed these doors because these are on the outskirts of the district.
I only know some history of one of the buildings in the gallery. The Solomon Welles House was built in 1774 for a descendant of the colonial governor Thomas Welles. At one point, when there was a large state prison in Wethersfield, the warden lived in the Welles house. When the state prison was demolished in 1963 the former warden’s residence, was given to the town by the state and is now is available to town residents for meetings and social events.
I hope you enjoy the views of the Solomon Welles House and the other houses I found in this area. Also, please check out a few links to the doors from the other participants. Also, I am cat-sitting today, so I might be late getting around to some of your doors.
