Mystic’s Wooden Welcome Signs

Even on cold and gloomy January afternoons the carved Historic Mystic signs are a warm, welcoming site. There are four signs located on the outskirts of Downtown Mystic, two in West Mystic, and two in East Mystic:

New London Road between Library and High Street near the Union Baptist Church

near Daniel Packer Inne where Noank Road meets Water Street

across the street from Mine, next to Mystic Cycling Center on Stonington Road

Greenmanville Avenue outside Elm Grove Cemetery

These signs were done by the hands of Mystic Seaport ship carvers. Here’s an excerpt from our book, Images of Modern America: Mystic (co-written by Lisa Saunders)

“The wooden welcome sign pictured on Greenville Avenue in 2015 was carved by Mystic Seaport ship carvers. Other signs appear on New London Rd., Stonington Road at the intersection of Noank Road and Water Street. In 1976 the town of Stonington created the Mystic Bridge Historic District and the Town of Groton created the Mystic River Historic District. Both designations are intended to regulate and preserve the historic appearance of Mystic.”

  1. I love seeing all four of these beautiful signs in one post and feel they are a creative way of welcoming visitors to our quaint fishing village. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Very good question…we’re not sure! Your best bet of finding out would be to contact Mystic Seaport directly.
