About Groton

The Town of Groton, located midway between New York and Boston, is the largest municipality between New Haven, Connecticut, and the cities surrounding Providence, Rhode Island. Framed by the Thames and Mystic Rivers, Groton is notable for its shores on Long Island Sound, just east of the end of Long Island. Within the town limits you will find the boroughs of Mystic, Noank, Groton Long Point and the self-governing City of Groton.

Groton is the home of Naval Submarine Base New London, the Global Research and Development campus of Pfizer, Inc., and the submarine construction facilities of the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics, Inc. Other industries in our town range from a traditional fishing boat fleet to advanced medical supply manufacturing. The recent completion of the University of Connecticut Marine Sciences center at Avery Point, with its related enterprises, gives Groton a unique place among centers of science and learning.
