From the 1870s through to 1941, Roton Point Park (Rowayton, Connecticut) was one of the pre-eminent attractions along the shores of Long Island Sound. From its shady picnic grove overlooking the water to its sand beaches, hotel, dance floor, carousel, roller coaster and midway rides, Roton Point attracted thousands of visitors each season. Damage from the 1938 hurricane and the start of World War II led to the park’s closing in 1941.
