Old Saybrook, CT

There is quite a bit of history at Old Saybrook Point.  This site was once occupied by a fort which eventually made way for a roundhouse serving the Connecticut Vally Railroad.  The railroad ran between Old Saybrook and Hartford starting in 1871.  The rail line eventually became a part of the New Haven Railroad in 1892, and operated up until 1968.  Today part of the railroad is still being used by the Essex Steam Train, which was pictured in this post.  Today, this is all that is left of the roundhouse and turntable


  1. The second photo looks a bit like the remains you might find around here of Roman theatres.

  2. Yes, you're right, Martina. It does look somewhat like the ruins of a Roman theater, however not nearly as ancient. Thanks for looking.
