Lordship Maps

1908DuckNeckCreekBridge.jpg

The traditional boundary of Lordship was everything south of Duck Neck Creek. Using the 1893 map below as a guide, Lordship was an island until the mid 1890's when Frank Hopson built the dike road to Bridgeport. The only way to get into Lordship was by the bridge pictured to the right. It was possible to pilot a flat bottom boat from the Housatonic River at Sniffen's lane (north of today's basin entrance), go under the bridge, along Duck Neck Creek, into Lewis' Gut and into Bridgeport. Long Beach consisted of the entire beach, including Pleasure Beach. Pleasure Beach was sold to Bridgeport sometime around 1890.
