One of my favorite sites in the area, is the website of the Town of Groton. While it isn't a real pretty site, it is full of interesting information and useful links presented in a well organized and user friendly format.
I love being able to go there and explore the history of Groton online and look at all the old photographs. You can also pay your taxes online and review the agendas and minutes of most commissions and agencies. Don't look for a link to the Zoning Commission on Ledyard's website or even the names of Ledyard Town Councilors. Groton's website lists each councilor, and complete contact information including an email link.
As far as real estate, Groton's site is nirvana. Real estate agents love the site because just about everything needed is online - assessor cards, taxes, maps, and land use information.... more
