Wethersfield Historical Society’s logo is Peter Blinn’s Sunflower. Peter Blinn was a Wethersfield craftsman who immigrated to Wethersfield in the 1670s and served as one of two joiners in town in the late 17th century. The Society holds in the permanent exhibit one of approximately sixty “sunflower” chests that are credited to Blinn.

The expert craftsmanship and detail of the chest with the distinctive sunflower motif signify the unique quality of the piece and the town it represents.To view the Blinn Chest at theWethersfield Museum please visit our permanent exhibit,Legendary People, Ordinary Lives.
