Thimble Islands are the largest archipelago in Connecticut, according to the American newspaper City of Branford.

Tour boat captains who have visited the islands claim that there are ‘365 of them – one for every day of the year.’

In the 19th and 20th centuries, the islands were a hub for lobstermen and commercial fishermen, and some had hotels and guest houses.

Originally built on one of the islands in 1912, this Connecticut property was likely originally one of these boarding houses.
