"Bluff Point was designated a 'Coastal Reserve' by a special act of the Connecticut legislature in 1975 to establish the area 'for the purpose of preserving its native ecological associations, unique faunal and floral characteristics, geological features and scenic qualities in a condition of undisturbed integrity'."
"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.
