Quest Day brings treasure hunt-style hikes to New London and Groton
29 May 2018
Did you know that the red Ebenezer Avery House at the bottom of Fort Griswold State Park was used as an infirmary for injured soldiers at the Battle of Groton Heights? Did you know that a member of the Pequot Tribe was killed in that battle? Did you know that the little brick house within the fort was used to heat cannonballs? Conceivably, those might be easy facts to overlook or forget, but those are just some of the small details that you’ll learn, or relearn, if you take part in Thames River Heritage Park’s first Quest Day — a self-guided treasure hunt-style educational hike organized in recognition of Connecticut Trails Day.
