Short Description: 

Wild Bill's Nostalgia Center is now located at a 40 acre site at 1003 Newfield St., Middletown, CT.

Long Description. 

What a special, albeit kitchy, place! At its heart is a store that specializes in 60's memorabilia. On the grounds is a fantastic display of murals, a haunted house, vintage vehicles, etc.  Aging hippie Bill Ziegler has amassed an incredible collection of artifacts that are on display on the grounds and inside the store. Highlights include a Clarabelle head once owned by Clarabelle himself, actor Bob Keeshan, a mural tribute  to Woodstock featuring Bob Marley, Jimi Hendricks, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Jerry Garcia. VW hippie vans and much, much, more.
