Now in recent years, there is still physical evidence of Thomas Stanton’s presence in the 17th Century.  If you plan a pilgrimage to the eastern CT shore you will find a number of sites which will take you back in time and give you a chance for reflection.  Your travel destination can be Mystic CT or Stonington CT and you will be within a 30 miles radius of these treasures.  Even one of the more commercial attractions, Mystic Seaport, has a distant link with the Stanton family. We hope all Stantons will one day have the opportunity to visit this historic area.
