Overview


Woodmont on the Sound inhabits a small corner of the world: one square mile with a mile and a half of shoreline on Long Island Sound. It is a borough within the city of Milford, and at the beginning of the 20th century it became a popular summer resort, as trolleys ran through the area from New Haven to Bridgeport. Stately wooden hotels, inns, and cottages welcomed guests for days, weeks, or the entire summer season. Woodmont was a destination for those seeking sun, swimming, boating, and fishing during the hot summer months. Before electricity, telephones, and automobiles, postcards were a fun and vital communication between Woodmont residents and the outside world.
