In 1752, Joseph Webb, a prosperous merchant, built a large gambrel-roof house in Wethersfield. The Webb House was the site where George Washington met the Comte de Rochambeau to plan what became the final campaign of the Revolutionary War at Yorktown. Highlights of this house include the original eighteenth century flocked wallpaper hung in the chamber where Washington slept, and murals commissioned by Wallace Nutting in 1919 that tell the story of the Battle of Yorktown. The restored Webb House Colonial Revival Garden is open to the public. The National Society of The Colonial Dames in the State of Connecticut purchased the house in 1919 from Wallace Nutting, the noted collector and antiquarian.
