Mystic, CT is the home of Mystic Pizza, the setting of the movie by the same name. It's pretty good pizza.
While we were there we visited the Branford House, on the UCONN Avery campus.
Branford House was originally a 31-room mansion that rivaled those found in Newport. It was built at a cost of three million dollars in 1903 when Groton Savings Bank at the time had $312,738.39.
The mansion was built by Morton Freeman Plant, and designed by his wife Nellie, who had studied architecture at the Sorbonne.
Nice grounds, too, with its own lighthouse.
