View of the Robert Mills Custom House (1833-35)

Custom House Maritime Museum, New London

The Library occupies a second floor room in the Custom House Maritime Museum, at the front of the 1835 Custom House designed by Robert Mills, architect of the Washington Monument.  The microfilms of New London customs records are located in an adjacent room that still serves as a customs office.  This Greek Revival structure stood at the edge of the Thames River until the railroad was built in the 19th century on landfill along the shoreline.
