"The current site of Ford’s Lobster has been an integral part of Noank history since the turn of the century. The Haring Family first ran a small gas dock and bait and tackle in the mid 1950s, which continued until Orion Ford took over the business ownership in 1970. Orion added a retail lobster shack, which continues to this day. Upon Orion’s retirement in 2005, Kris took over operations... In 2010 Kris and Kerrie purchased a hot dog cart with their last bit of savings, crossed their fingers and hoped people would come by for a lobster roll. They did!" -Ford's Lobster.
