THINGS TO IN DO New London, CT

New London CT

New London CT is a seaport city and a port of entry on the northeast coast of the United States. It is located at the mouth of the Thames River in New London County, Southeastern Connecticut. For several decades beginning in the early 19th century, New London was one of the world’s three busiest whaling ports, along with Nantucket and New Bedford, Massachusetts.

The wealth that whaling brought into the city furnished the capital to fund much of the city’s present architecture. New London subsequently became home to other shipping and manufacturing industries.New London CT is home to the United States Coast Guard Academy, Connecticut College, Mitchell College, and The Williams School.T

I discovered this historic neighborhood in New London, CT, recently and was waiting for an opportunity to photograph it. With the snow, all the cars had to be off the street so it was easier to see and photograph all these amazing historic homes.

The homes were built between 1835 and 1895 in Greek Revival and Italianate style. They were the homes of tradesmen and artists, and many were the work of one carpenter, John Bishop.

Before the street was laid out in 1835, part of it was a 500 foot ropewalk, which is a long, low building used to wind strands of hemp into rope that was mainly used for ships. The ropewalk burned in 1834, but many of the street's residents pursued other maritime occupations including whaling.

By the 1970s, many of the homes were abandoned, and the neighborhood was slated for demolition until the Savings Bank of New London bought and restored most of the houses. The Starr Street Historic District was established in 1981.

I love knowing the history of the places around me. It makes it that much more meaningful to me knowing how and why a place came to be.

Because it’s National Lighthouse Day, here’s a flashback to last summer, when we used to go out and do stuff. There’s a post on TSOC all about this CT/NY lighthouse cruise out of New London, if you’re optimistically planning for the day we can go out and do stuff again. #thesizeofconnecticut ...

Architectural note: it’s extremely important to match your lilies to your house paint.

The amusement rides and water slides
sit alone
in Winters cold.
Dreaming of Summer days, of bathing suits and child’s play,
Squeals of joy, temps on the rise,
Boardwalk crowds, the smell of fries.
Longer days filled with fun,
Tides rush in, the rising sun.
Now all is quiet, still, and cold,
But soon enough Summer will unfold.
Sleep sweet Summer, rest your eyes,
Dream of fun filled days gone by.
It’s Winter’s turn,
the beach is bare,
winds and cold fill the air.
🍦
