    Event Name:
    100 Year of the Mystic River Bridge

    Event Description:
    One of Southeastern Connecticut’s most visible and popular landmarks is the Mystic River
    bascule bridge. As we are in the mist of celebrating the 100 th anniversary of the building of that
    bridge, it is appropriate that we “take a step back in time” and look at some of the previous
    bridges and means used to cross the river.
    Jim Streeter will provide a historical glimpse, through photographs and related
    information, about the various bridges used to cross the Mystic River.
    Jim is the Historian for the Town of Groton and has authored and co-authored six books relating
    to Groton’s History. For a period of over ten years, he has written over two hundred articles
    relating to Groton’s history for the Groton Times Newspaper. A few years ago, Jim donated his
    vast collection of Groton historical documents, photographs and memorabilia to the Groton
    Public Library.
    Jim is a retired Forensic Evidence Examination with the Connecticut State Police. He is a
    graduate of the University of New Haven, holding undergraduate degrees in Criminal Justice and
    a Master’s degree in Human Resources. Jim has served on both Town and City of Groton
    Councils and was Mayor of Town of Groton Mayor from 2009 – 2011
    A native of Groton, he has been married to his lovely wife Irma for 58 years, has two children,
    two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
