About Historic Groton Heights

Groton Heights is a historic village on the east bank of the Thames River in Groton, Connecticut. Geographically it comprises less than a half square mile–about 1% of the Town of Groton and about 10% of the Town’s major subdivision, the City of Groton. Today the Groton Heights neighborhood contains a few hundred houses, three churches, a library, two museums, a Revolutionary War fort and business structures dating primarily from Colonial times to a century ago. Groton Heights and Fort Griswold are separate but adjacent Historic Districts listed on the U.S. Department of the Interior’s National Register of Historic Places.

Groton Heights Waterfront Festival

Our mission
We will organize educational experiences, including an annual open house in the historic village of Groton Heights; inviting the public from near and far. Our goal is to remove barriers—such as admission costs and transportation— and to create a friendly, accessible environment for people to explore, learn and enjoy the amazing amount of history, technology, culture and arts in and near the Groton Heights neighborhood. The experiences will be educational resources and a source of pride in our region.
