Presidents' Day: What's Open, Closed in Middletown

Monday is a federal holiday in honor of the nation's first president, George Washington, sometimes called "Presidents' Day." Here's a starter list of what's open and closed in town.


Own a business or involved in an organization in Middletown? Tell us in the comments thread below whether you're open, closed or holding special hours on Monday, a federal holiday. We'll update this article with your information.

What's Closed


  • Town Hall— Strictly speaking, Monday is known as Washington's Birthday (though the great man was born Feb. 22), and has only become known as "Presidents' Day" more recently to also ecompass Abraham Lincon's Feb. 12 birthday (in Connecticut, a state holiday).
  • Russell Library is closed for Presidents' Day.
  • Middletown Post Office—There will be no mail delivered or sent Monday.
  • Middletown Public Schools—No school Monday due to the holiday, but open the rest of the week.

State & Region

  • Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles customer services offices will close at 12:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and will be closed Monday.

Tschudin Chocolates & Confections open regular business hours 11a-9p. Cordial cherries from a tree he didn't chop down. Plus come check out our new Hot Chocolate machine, straight from Italy! One sip and you'll immediately understand the difference between hot chocolate and hot cocoa!
