Banton Street nestled between Route 15 and the Quinnipiac River from the
1920's to the early 70's, at its peak it was home to over 36 homes, Now?...
Population zero. Do to upstream development over the years river flooding
became too much for this community, and in 1972 the state bought the remaining
homes demolishing them to the ground. Now all that remains are empty grass covered
lots and plant covered curb line with the remains of building foundations.
Today a majority of Banton Street is owned by the state of Connecticut and
part of the Quinnipiac River State Park. Its abandoned streets can be walked today
without fear of trespassing.
