Choate Boat House

You need two things to have a successful boating crew. A crew and well... Water. Choate's boating crew had both until 30 years ago when they lost their water. In the blink of an eye the dam that held Wallingford's  Community Lake together was breached resulting in the draining of the lake into the Quinnipiac River. The famous private school was left high and dry with no other options the abandoned their beloved lake house moving to the nearby town of Guilford.

Today Community Lake is still no more, after talks with the EPA of building a 25 Million dollar dam fell through.

  3. My dad was the crew coach here for many years. I was on the Choate crew. I have many, many memories inside and outside this building. So sad to see it neglected. I don't know why Choate has allowed this to happen.
