Stonington Custom House

Stonington Borough, CT USA

"On Main Street in Stonington is a granite Greek Revival building that served as a custom house. Built around 1827, it originally served as a bank... Stonington had some direct trade with the West Indies and was made a Port of Entry in 1842. It was probably around this time the building began to be used as a custom house." Historic Buildings of Connecticut

Stonington Borough is located where Long Island Sound meets the Atlantic Ocean. Stonington sits on a peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. There is a large harbor and Stonington has the only commercial fishing fleet in Connecticut. Stonington is famous for its sea scallops. It is very quaint, with a number of art galleries, shops and restaurants.
