City Pier, New London Waterfront Park
Join us on the Thames River Heritage Park Water Taxi to hear the tales of the incredible women who shaped our region. “Suffragettes, Puppeteers, & Patriots: Women of the Thames” is a new 90-minute boat tour.
Throughout history, local women have made significant contributions to the economic, cultural, educational and social fabric of the Thames River communities. From the woman who was instrumental to the patriotic cause during the American Revolution and War of 1812, to the female educators who restored the opportunity for women to earn college degrees in the state, to the woman who wrote the book aiming to keep travelers of color safe in a segregated America and a major female philanthropist, women in Groton and New London have stepped up in many ways. Come and hear their stories on this tour focused on the women of the Thames.
