"We, the undersigned, urge the Connecticut Historic Preservation Council to oppose the demolition of 130 Bank Street, New London, Connecticut.

Downtown New London is fortunate to have a largely intact historic waterfront. Together, these buildings along Bank Street contribute to our identity as a historic seaport town. 130 Bank Street is one of the oldest buildings on Bank Street and was owned by Captain John Deshon, who became a sea captain in 1798 when he was twenty one years old. Other members of the Deshon family were founders of Saint James Episcopal Church and were prominent in the whaling industry.

Although this house suffers from deferred maintenance, a structural engineer who toured the building in March 2017 says the building is "generally sound" and "fixable."
