Maritime heritage trail coming to region
25 Jun 2018
The University of Connecticut has announced a new $40,000 project funded by the U.S. Department of the Interior to create a maritime heritage trail in southeastern Connecticut.
The so-called Blue Heritage Trail will be focused on the Thames River Heritage Park that connects several historic sites in and near the waterway. The heritage park currently lists 18 local sites, including the Custom House Maritime Museum, Nathan Hale Schoolhouse and Fort Trumbull in New London, as well as the Avery-Copp House, U.S. Submarine Force Museum & Library and Fort Griswold in Groton.
