Part of a well-laid-out walking tour are two Hempsted Houses, the wood-framed older one (1678) is one of the oldest 17th-century houses in New England and the oldest in New London. It was maintained by the descendants of the original owners until 1937, having survived the burning of New London by Benedict Arnold and the British in 1781.
