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.
