Examples of Carpenter Gothic style Victorian houses on Groton Bank.

Capt John W. Miner House, c. 1867

Captain Miner sailed packet ships, a major form of coastal transportation.  Typical of the Gothic style, the house has a steeply pitched roof with elaborate scrollwork bargeboards on the eaves.

Another example is the Seabury Memorial Church, 1875, named in honor of Groton-born Rev. Samuel Seabury, first American to be consecrated as a protestant Episcopal bishop.  Today it is an Islamic center.  (No photo).

Capt. Edward T. Pettigrew House, c. 1885
