Latham Chester Store

Noank, CT

This building is one of two buildings owned by the Noank Historical Society and located right next to the town beach.  Noank has a long history of ship building and once was home to The Palmer Shipyard, the largest builder of wooden boats on the Atlantic Coast during the late 1800's.  Noank also has ties to the history of early aviation, as can be seen by the plaque found on the front of the building.


  1. Noank is not a place I know. Another place to visit this summer.

  2. It's quaint village located in the town of Groton. If you visit, you'll have to stop at Abbott's Lobster in the Rough for a lobster dinner.
