The Captain Islands (Great Captain, Little Captain and Wee Captain) are barrier islands off Greenwich’s coast that are a splendid cruising destination and anchorage; check local charts and navigation aids to avoid submerged rocks. Great Captain Island features a 19th century lighthouse. The Town of Greenwich operates a ferry service out of Greenwich Harbor to Great Captain Island and to Island Beach during the summer season, June through mid-September. Great Captain Island has campsites and trails available by permit to residents only; the lighthouse is not available for tours. Part of the island is a wildlife preserve and the site of the largest wading bird rookery in Connecticut, with 300 nesting pairs of egrets and herons. Calf Island is a 31.5 acre protected island less than ¾ mile from the Byram Shore (Byram Park beach) and about 1 mile from Great Captain Island. It is the largest offshore island in Greenwich and connected at low tide to Greenwich Land Trust’s Shell Island.

Calf Island’s diverse coastal habitat provides excellent foraging and roosting for wading birds. The island was acquired in 2003 by US Fish & Wildlife and is now a unit of the Stewart B McKinney National Wildlife Refuge. With 97% of Connecticut coastline developed, protected barrier islands are vital to the survival of local and migratory birds. Several of the other barrier islands are privately owned. The islands have an interesting history of ownership, development, and usage, especially during the years of The Prohibition when rumrunners frequented the Long Island Sound and Connecticut’s shoreline; barrier islands were often used to stash bootleg liquor. Some had been developed as private summer retreats and resorts prior to Stock Market Crash and Great Depression.

The Town of Greenwich was a farming community when the land between the Asamuck and Patomuck Rivers was purchased from the Munsee Indians in 1640 and settled. Greenwich Point in the Old Greenwich area was called “Elizabeth’s Neck” for early settler, Elizabeth Fones Winthrop, daughter in law to John Winthrop who was founder and governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Greenwich became a township in 1665. Farming continued well into the 20th century, and several exclusive housing developments are named for the farms they now occupy—Conyers Farm, West Lyon Farm, and Baldwin Farms are a few. Today’s estates, owned by some of the wealthiest people, continue in the farming legacy of the past, producing eggs, butter, milk, smoked meats, fruits, and vegetables for sale, creating a bucolic retreat from the stress of the City and office.

The Revolutionary War turned peaceful Greenwich into a destructive battlefield for 7 years, as farms, homes, crops, and lives were destroyed. Agriculture continued for 200 years as Greenwich’s major source of income. Grist mills brought a shift to industry and shipping from the Mianus River. In 1848, the railroad came to Greenwich and with it brought changes, notably European immigrants looking for work. Distinct neighborhoods developed, continuing through second and third generations. The late 19th century-early 20th century saw the development of summer resorts for New Yorkers and shoreline hotels were built to accommodate the many affluent summer visitors. Many of these wealthy families built their own summer homes, and some like Rockefeller, Havemeyer, Benedict, Mallory, and others amassed large land holdings and built the grand estates Greenwich is famous for. With major transportation infrastructure added in the 20th century (Merritt Parkway in 1938 and I-95 in 1957) the town’s population grew, adding New York City corporation employees who preferred the suburban lifestyle.

Escalating land prices and this influx of new residents led to escalating land prices, sub-division, and a sell-off of Greenwich land to accommodate the demand. In the latter part of the 20th century, a growing number of residents became concerned about protecting and preserving the historical heritage of Greenwich and as a result local historical districts were formed, along with 6 National Register districts, to prevent historical landmarks from disappearing. Over 280 structures were recognized by the Greenwich Historical Society, as advocates for historic preservation, in its Landmarks Program. The Town and private non-profit organizations acquired undeveloped land for park and conservation areas.

Some examples of Landmark Places are the Sylvanus Selleck Gristmill – built c. 1796; listed 1990 in NRHP (National Register of Historic Places), Josiah Wilcox House – built 1838; listed 1988 in NRHP, Rosemary Hall (aka Japanese School) – built 1901-1928; listed 1998 in NRHP, Thomas Lyon House (aka Lyon Cottage) – built 1695; listed 1977 in NRHP, Indian Harbor Yacht Club – built 1920; listed 2010 in NRHP, Peake-Ferris House – built c 1760 is the oldest in Greenwich and one of the oldest in the US; listed 1989 in NRHP, and French Farm – built 1906-1911, listed 1975 in NRHP.
