Sure, they all have power lines now, and parking lots and satellite dishes and all those ugly modern conveniences. And of course, normal daily 21st century life goes on in North Stonington, as it does everywhere. People mow their perfect lawns and politely maneuver their cars around you as you stop to take photos of their pristine homes and churches.
Still, after the cars pass by, it is so easy to squint and pretend that nothing much has happened here since they built the dam to create the millpond or converted the old general store into the old town hall.
By the way, North Stonington also has two historic schoolhouses (that is, two that I know of so far.) I posted one of them - and will be posting the other soon - on @OldSchoolCT.
