Fort Griswold overlooks the Thames River that is the primary waterway in eastern Connecticut. During the Revolutionary War, For Griswold was a key landmark during the Battle of Groton Heights in 1781 when Benedict Arnold and British troops invaded and burned New London, including what is today Groton; however the Fort was spared when the British took control of it. The property includes several other structures. The Groton Monument, a 135-foot (41-meter) and 166-step obelisk dedicated to the fort's defenders. The nearby Monument House Museum and Ebenezer Avery House present numerous Revolutionary War-themed lectures and exhibits throughout the year.
