Sightseeing
Excellent history. Oportunity to see the harbor great place to walk. Minutes from UConn Avery point this is a good spot to walk The Branford House is located on the campus of UConn Avery Point rented for events. Branford House was built in 1902 for Morton Freeman Plant, a local financier and philanthropist, as his summer home; he named it after his hometown of Branford, Connecticut. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 23, 1984. When built in 1902, Branford Manor cost $3 million - an incredible sum of money at the time. Branford House was designed by Plant's wife Nellie (who had a Sorbonne education in architecture) and built by Robert W. Gibson. Although the outside was built to the Tudor style to match the estate, the interior was a patchwork of various styles - "Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance, Classical, and even Flemish" – the doors can be found open occasionally. Definitely something worth walking thru. The house included a two-story fireplace surrounded by a clothes-drying conveyor belt, a then-rare elevator, and other architectural curiosities like doors leading into exterior walls. Plant fancied himself a 'gentleman farmer' and built vast agricultural facilities on the grounds. These included huge greenhouses (including one to store his tropical plants during the winter), a 22,250-square-foot cow barn, poultry enclosures, and fruit and vegetable fields. The estate totaled more than 70 acres, including carpentry and plumbing shops, a boarding house, and other buildings. Bothered by its smell, Plant bought the Quinnipiac Fertilizer Company on nearby Pine Island and replaced it with an orchard where his grandchildren played. Plant died in 1918; the estate passed through his son then his daughter-in-law before being sold for just $55,000 at auction in 1939. The state of Connecticut soon acquired the property, and passed it to the United States Coast Guard via a quitclaim deed funded by the federal government. As a duty to that deed the Coast Guard built Avery Point Light in 1942, though it was not lit until 1944. The lavish grounds were bulldozed into the water to make room for barracks for a training center; the house became offices and executive quarters. The west wing was used as the base chapel until it was destroyed by fire in 1963. In 1967, the property was transferred back to the state for use as a satellite campus of the University of Connecticut.

New London Ledge Lighthouse was built in 1909 on the southwest ledge. It was originally called the Southwest Ledge light renamed New London Ledge Light in 1910. The United States Coast Guard took over in 1939 upon its merger with the Lighthouse Service and the light was automated in 1987. The original fourth order Fresnel lens was removed and was later put on display in the Custom House Maritime Museum ( great place to look around – located in New London on Bank Street) . The light was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[4] • Postcard, about 1910 • New London Ledge is locally famous for the ghost of an early keeper named Ernie who allegedly haunts the lighthouse. The Coast Guard crew on duty at the lighthouse reported unexplained knockings taking place at night, as well as doors opening and closing repeatedly, the television turning on and off by itself sporadically, and the unexplained removal of sheets from beds. An unknown Coast Guard officer wrote the following in the crew's log on the last night before the automated light system was installed: "Rock of slow torture. Ernie's domain. Hell on earth—may New London Ledge’s light shine on forever because I’m through. I will watch it from afar while drinking a brew." Ledge Light has been featured on paranormal reality shows such as Scariest Places on Earth and Ghost Hunters. Investigators from The Atlantic Paranormal Society concluded on Ghost Hunters that there was not enough evidence to determine any paranormal activity taking place at the lighthouse, despite a few unexplained phenomena such as cold spots.

New London Harbor Light is a lighthouse in Connecticut on the west side of the New London harbor entrance. It is the nation's fifth oldest light station and the seventh oldest U.S. lighthouse. It is both the oldest and the tallest lighthouse in Connecticut and on Long Island Sound, with its tower reaching 90 feet. The light is visible for 15 miles. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. It is currently owned and maintained by the New London Maritime Society as part of the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act program. New London Harbor Light is located in New London, off Pequot Avenue. In addition to the lighthouse, the station included the keeper's house which is now a personal residence, a small two-story brick residence. The property once also included a barn, an oil house, and an engine room; all of these structures have been removed.

Nautilus Museum – closed to general public until end August ☹ Construction of NAUTILUS was made possible by the successful development of a nuclear propulsion plant by a group of scientists and engineers at the Naval Reactors Branch of the Atomic Energy Commission, under the leadership of Captain Hyman G. Rickover, USN. In July of 1951, Congress authorized construction of the world’s first nuclear powered submarine. On December 12th of that year, the Navy Department announced that she would be the sixth ship of the fleet to bear the name NAUTILUS. Her keel was laid by President Harry S. Truman at the Electric Boat Shipyard in Groton, Connecticut on June 14, 1952. (which is just down the street – if you look just right as you drive by the shipyard you can see the pieces of subs in the makings) After nearly 18 months of construction, NAUTILUS was launched on January 21, 1954 with First Lady Mamie Eisenhower breaking the traditional bottle of champagne across NAUTILUS’ bow as she slid down the ways into the Thames River. Eight months later, on September 30, 1954, NAUTILUS became the first commissioned nuclear powered ship in the United States Navy. On the morning of January 17, 1955, at 11 am EST, NAUTILUS’ first Commanding Officer, Commander Eugene P. Wilkinson, ordered all lines cast off and signaled the memorable and historic message, “Underway On Nuclear Power.” Over the next several years, NAUTILUS shattered all submerged speed and distance records. CDR Anderson On July 23, 1958, NAUTILUS departed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii under top secret orders to conduct “Operation Sunshine”, the first crossing of the North Pole by a ship. At 11:15 pm on August 3, 1958, NAUTILUS’ second Commanding Officer, Commander William R. Anderson, announced to his crew, “For the world, our country, and the Navy – the North Pole.” With 116 men aboard, NAUTILUS had accomplished the “impossible”, reaching the geographic North Pole – 90 degrees North. In May 1959, NAUTILUS entered Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Kittery, Maine for her first complete overhaul – the first of any nuclear powered ship – and the replacement of her second fuel core. Upon completion of her overhaul in August 1960, NAUTILUS departed for a period of refresher training, then deployed to the Mediterranean Sea to become the first nuclear powered submarine assigned to the U.S. Sixth Fleet. Over the next six years, NAUTILUS participated in several fleet exercises while steaming over 200,000 miles. In the spring of 1966, she again entered the record books when she logged her 300,000th mile underway. During the following 12 years, NAUTILUS was involved in a variety of developmental testing programs while continuing to serve alongside many of the more modern nuclear powered submarines she had preceded. In the spring of 1979, NAUTILUS set out from Groton, Connecticut on her final voyage. She reached Mare Island Naval Shipyard, Vallejo, California on May 26, 1979 – her last day underway. She was decommissioned on March 3, 1980 after a career spanning 25 years and over half a million miles steamed. In recognition of her pioneering role in the practical use of nuclear power, NAUTILUS was designated a National Historic Landmark by the Secretary of the Interior on May 20, 1982. Following an extensive historic ship conversion at Mare Island Naval Shipyard, NAUTILUS was towed to Groton, Connecticut arriving on July 6, 1985. On April 11, 1986, eighty-six years to the day after the birth of the Submarine Force, Historic Ship NAUTILUS, joined by the Submarine Force Museum, opened to the public as the first and finest exhibit of its kind in the world, providing an exciting, visible link between yesterday’s Submarine Force and the Submarine Force of tomorrow.

The Castle is closed but the property is open for walking around until sunset. Top the most southerly hill in a chain known as the Seven Sisters, William Hooker Gillette, noted actor, director, and playwright, built this one hundred and eighty-four acre estate, the Seventh Sister. The focal point of his effort was a twenty four room mansion reminiscent of a medieval castle. Purchased by the State of Connecticut in 1943 from the executors of Mr. Gillette's will, Gillette Castle and the adjoining property with its fine woodlands, trails, and vistas are now administered for the enjoyment of present and future generations. This apparently would have pleased Gillette, since his will gave specific directions to see that the property did not fall into the hands "of some blithering saphead who has no conception of where he is or with what surrounded." This statement also points out the value Gillette placed upon his estate and the apprehension he felt about its disposition. Gillette designed the castle and most of its contents personally, periodically checking every phase of their construction. Built of local fieldstone supported by a steel framework, it took twenty men five years (1914-1919), to complete the main structure. Gillette began his semi-retirement in his new home; and in the following years, he supervised the many thousands of refinements created by local craftsmen. Gillette CastleThe woodwork within the castle is hand-hewn southern white oak. Of the forty-seven doors within the structure, there are no two exactly the same. And each door has a handsome external latch intricately carved of wood. Even the Castle's furnishings are indications of Gillette's inspirations. The built-in couches, a movable table on tracks, and light switches of carved wood all point to his creative genius. Outside on the grounds, Gillette's influence is no less in evidence. The trails often follow, over trestle and through tunnel, the actor's three mile long narrow gauge railroad. Gillette's own walking paths were constructed with near-vertical steps, stone-arch bridges, and wooded trestles spanning up to forty feet. Other outdoor attractions include a vegetable cellar, the railroad station (Grand Central), and Gillette's goldfish pond. Gillette was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1853, the son of former U.S. Senator Francis Gillette and his wife Elizabeth Daggett Hooker Gillette, a descendent of Thomas Hooker, the founder of Hartford. As a child, Gillette was captivated with the stage and acting pursuits, an interest that his parents did not encourage. At age thirteen, he reputedly had built a small stage and amused himself by frequently giving puppet shows for his friends. At age twenty, he left home to follow his chosen career; but success was slow in developing. He attended classes at numerous colleges including Trinity, Yale, Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and College of the City of New York, but never received a degree. His first recognition as an actor was attained when the lead became ill in "Broken Hearts" at the Globe Theater in Boston, and Gillette's stand-in performance was well received. This led to other and better roles for Gillette. He is most famous for his portrayal of "Sherlock Holmes". Besides his activities as an actor and playwright, Gillette is known to have written two novels, invented many trick stage props and lighting techniques, and often produced and directed the plays in which he appeared. After his semi-retirement in 1910, Gillette was welcomed by theatergoers countless times during his four revival tours. His last performance was at the Bushnell in Hartford in 1936, the year before his death.

Currently the Mayflower 2 is here for Sea trials after a several year restoration in Mystic Seaport. Also the Coast Guard Barque Eagle is typically here in port as well The blog has some other interesting facts http://www.oldsaltblog.com/2020/07/update-mayflower-ii-moves-from-mystic-to-new-london-for-sea-trial/ 7/20/20 Mayflower II, a replica of the ship that carried the Pilgrims to Plymouth, MA, was towed to New London, CT for two weeks of sea trials and final outfitting before returning to its homeport in Plymouth. In September of last year, we posted about the launching of the Mayflower II at the Mystic Seaport Museum‘s Henry B. duPont Preservation Shipyard. The 64-year-old ship underwent a more than three-year $11 million restoration at the seaport shipyard. The original plan was to begin moving the Mayflower II to Plymouth, MA with a departure in late April including several stops at southern New England ports before a May arrival. The plan was scrapped due to the pandemic. The Mayflower II is expected to arrive in Plymouth around August 10th. Boston.com notes that the Mayflower II has been a major tourist attraction and educational tool since it arrived in Plymouth as a gift from England in 1957. Stabilization efforts began in 2014, with the ship spending part of the year in Mystic. Continuous restoration work began at the seaport museum in 2016, with shipwrights from the seaport museum and artisans from Plimoth Plantation engaged in the work. The ship’s keel was saved, but nearly 75% of the vessel is reportedly new.

ALL ABOUT GOODSPEED WHERE WE'VE BEEN Goodspeed’s beginnings date back to 1963 when we opened our doors as a professional musical theatre in an historic building on the banks of the Connecticut River in East Haddam. Under the direction of Michael Price from 1968 to 2014, Goodspeed transformed from a struggling entity into a non-profit arts organization with a mission. At first, Goodspeed’s commitment was to discover rarely produced musicals from the repertoire, reworking them and bringing them to life. We were also intent on adding to the repertoire by discovering and nurturing promising new musicals presented at both the Opera House and the Norma Terris Theatre in neighboring Chester. In our history, we have produced over 250 musicals, including over 70 world premieres, and exported 21 productions to Broadway. Goodspeed stands as the first regional theatre in America to earn two special Tony Awards, one in 1980 for outstanding contributions to the American musical and a second in 1995 for distinguished achievement for a regional theatre. OPERA HOUSE TOURS WHERE DO COUNTRY STORES AND STEAMBOATS AND SHERLOCK HOLMES AND HIGHWAYS AND ANNIE AND TONY ALL COME TOGETHER? Come hear the story of how an enterprising family, a picturesque landmark, an insightful restoration, and brilliant execution evolved into one of the most important institutions in American theater: Goodspeed Musicals. Go behind the scenes of a musical at the Goodspeed Opera House. Explore places such as backstage and the actors' dressing rooms while learning about the vibrant history of the Opera House. Our hour-long tour is a perfect extension of any visit to the picturesque Connecticut River Valley. Have a picnic on the lawn, visit the nearby Gillette's Castle and Connecticut River Museum, or top your visit off with our current show. We are open to the public with tours on the 4th Saturday of the month, May through October, between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m (last tour leaves at 12:15 p.m.). Just walk in and our trained docents will guide you through the whole experience. All tours are open to the public. Reservations are not required. Even better, bring your friends! We can accomodate groups from 5 to 55 and can schedule to meet your needs seven days a week. (Provided that we're clear two hours before a performance. The show must go on!) Make a day of it... Many groups enjoy coming down for a tour in the late morning, lunch at the renowned Gelston House right next door, followed by a matinee of our current production. Altogether a complete theatrical experience. 2020 TOUR DATES: Saturdays, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Last tour leaves at 12:15 p.m. Tours have been cancelled until September due to the COVID-19 pandemic. September 26 October 24 SHOW: Starting September 11 - South specific Run Time: TBD Age Rating: PG On a lush tropical island during World War II, battles of the heart are center stage in the Goodspeed premiere of the soaring Rodgers & Hammerstein classic. Lovestruck nurse Nellie Forbush falls for a French planter. Lieutenant Joe Cable is drawn to a native girl. In an exotic world of risk and romance, prejudice clouds their potential paradise. Be swept away by twin love stories and a rapturous score that includes “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” “Bali Ha’i” and more.

The Ivoryton Playhouse is located in Ivoryton, a beautiful section of historic Essex, on the banks of the Connecticut River. The Playhouse has been an important part of Connecticut’s cultural landscape for over 100 years. It was one of America’s leading summer showplaces, presenting a parade of stars such as Katharine Hepburn, Marlon Brando, Tallulah Bankhead, Betty Grable, Mae West and many, many more. Over the course of the past 30 years, the Ivoryton Playhouse Foundation has completed a total renovation of the building, including new shingles, a new heating and air-conditioning system, new seats and state-of-the-art theatrical sound and lighting systems. The building is now prepared to face the second century of its life. Since 2006, under the Artistic Direction of Jacqueline Hubbard, the Foundation began producing a year-round season of professional theatre. Today, the theatre produces seven professional shows annually, drawing audiences from all over the Northeast. The 250-seat theatre is comfortable and air-conditioned and conveniently located off the highway close to several other desirable tourist destinations including Gillette Castle State Park, The Connecticut River Museum, Essex Steam Train and two major factory outlet shopping centers. The Ivoryton Playhouse is currently closed but will hopefully be announcing some kind of 2020 Season soon. Thank you for your patience while we all try to get through this difficult time. Single ticket pricing $55 adult / $50 senior / $25 student / $20 children 12 and under Box office: 860.767.7318

The Valley Railroad Company The Valley Railroad Company – operating the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat – has been serving the lower Connecticut River Valley since 1971. Our company’s mission is to keep alive the rich mechanical, industrial, and transportation heritage of our state through the continual operation of our vintage steam and diesel locomotives and passenger coaches, as well as the operation & maintenance of the facilities and infrastructure that support these. We welcome visitors from throughout the state of Connecticut, the New England region and all over the world to ride our railroad, relax aboard our riverboat and visit our unique facilities. Steam Train & Riverboat Ride Our best-known excursion, the iconic Steam Train & Riverboat ride, operates from May through October, with daily operation during the summer months. We’re the only Steam Train & Riverboat connection in the country, with two operating steam locomotives and multiple classes of passenger service – Coach, First Class, a seasonal Open Air Car, and, one weekend a month, aboard our Caboose or Cabin Car. The locomotives & the Becky Thatcher riverboat can be chartered for private cruises, dinners and events. Essex Clipper Dinner Train Another venerable institution is the Essex Clipper Dinner Train, a romantic and nostalgic culinary event aboard our First Class dining car as featured in the “Memorable Meals” sections of USA Today! Delight in top notch food and beverage service on weekends throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons. The Essex Clipper is available for charter for mid-week lunch excursions & private dinnertime events. We take our mission of “keeping steam alive” seriously. Each year we are thrilled to conduct several Hand on the Throttle educational sessions, teaching participants the fundamentals of steam locomotive operation and allowing them to take our steam locomotives (and diesel locomotives) out for a spin. And yes, you can sound the whistle! We also host school field trips during the spring, a perfect opportunity to for educators to incorporate science, history, technology, and culture all while engaging kids with a real train ride! In August, we invite historical figures to ride the rails and engage our guests in historically accurate conversation through our Passengers from the Past program. Finally, we make our beautiful facilities, equipment, and catering staff available for weddings, reunions, meetings, and other events. Contact our events coordinator to discuss your event, and arrange for a tour of River Valley Junction, the Oliver Jensen Gallery, the Becky Thatcher Riverboat or the Essex Clipper Dinner Train.

Here are a few thoughts: Make sure your children take swimming lessons. Swim only in designated areas where there are lifeguards present. Never swim alone. If you are the parent or guardian, the child’s safety is YOUR responsibility. Never trust a child, lifeguard, or any other individual to take it on for you. It’s yours. Leave your phone in your bag. Establish rules and boundaries for the kids so you can watch them easier. Young children or inexperienced swimmers should wear coast guard approved life jackets…but don’t rely on them. Don’t let the kids play any unsafe games in or near the water, including diving, jumping into the water, holding breath games, etc. Inflatables and other water toys are not life saving devices. Parents and kids digging holes in the sand and building sand castles, never allow them to dig deep holes or tunnels, especially near water lines (area where waves come in) and fill in holes when you are done. Let’s all please have a safe and enjoyable summer. We are proud of our lifeguard staff and safety programs and are here to help, but it starts with you. Please watch your kids!

Here are a few thoughts: Make sure your children take swimming lessons. Swim only in designated areas where there are lifeguards present. Never swim alone. If you are the parent or guardian, the child’s safety is YOUR responsibility. Never trust a child, lifeguard, or any other individual to take it on for you. It’s yours. Leave your phone in your bag. Establish rules and boundaries for the kids so you can watch them easier. Young children or inexperienced swimmers should wear coast guard approved life jackets…but don’t rely on them. Don’t let the kids play any unsafe games in or near the water, including diving, jumping into the water, holding breath games, etc. Inflatables and other water toys are not life saving devices. Parents and kids digging holes in the sand and building sand castles, never allow them to dig deep holes or tunnels, especially near water lines (area where waves come in) and fill in holes when you are done. Let’s all please have a safe and enjoyable summer. We are proud of our lifeguard staff and safety programs and are here to help, but it starts with you. Please watch your kids!
Welcome Rocky Neck State Park East Lyme The Pavillion at Rocky NeckThe beautiful, gently sloping, soft sandy beach, picnic areas, train watching, diverse trail systems and salt marsh viewing platforms make this park ideal for families. Try crabbing or fishing. Look for ospreys, cranes, and herons or other waterfowl. Rocky Neck provides something for all members of the family. PLEASE NOTE: For current water quality alerts for this park, please visit www.ct.gov/deep/beachstatus Overview/History Located on Long Island Sound in the town of East Lyme, 710-acre Rocky Neck is a popular recreation spot. The public now enjoys use of the park because of a few farsighted conservationists who secured the land in 1931, using their personal funds until the State Legislature authorized its purchase. Rocky Neck's varied terrain offers something for everyone. Clear waters and the stone-free beach with expanses of white sand make it ideal for swimming. Many beautiful picnic locations are scattered throughout the park. The historic stone Ellie Mitchell Pavilion dominates the park's western shoreline. In the 1930's, relief agencies constructed the curved masonry building of native materials and crafted supporting pillars with wood cut from each of the state parks and forests. Diverse trails within the park provide easy and interesting walks to the scenic salt marsh and to such points of interest as Baker's Cave, Tony's Nose and Shipyard. Family camping within walking distance of saltwater bathing is also popular at Rocky Neck with 160 wooded and open campsites offering weekenders and vacationers attractive overnight accommodations. Bounded on the west by a tidal river and to the east by a broad salt marsh, Rocky Neck was known to both Indians and colonists as a place of abundant fish and wildlife. Today, high spring tides allow schools of alewives (herring) to swim into Bride Brook toward inland spawning grounds. The osprey, or fish hawk, is a frequent early summer visitor. In the fall, cranes, herons and mute swans wade among cattails and rose mallow. Seasonal changes provide opportunities to fish for mackerel, striped bass, blackfish and flounder.

A seasonal favorite. Not only do they have a year round farm stand to purchase items. But there are fruit picking options. In the fall - there is apple picking, corn maze, pumpkins, wine barn is open, and picnicking options.
