TheDay.com: With 5 signatures and a handshake, the land that will be the site of the future National Coast Guard Museum passed from the city to the Coast Guard on Friday [May 2].

Museum supporters gathered at City Pier with the barque Eagle and the lifeboat CG36500 as a backdrop to watch Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio and Adm. Robert J. Papp Jr., the Coast Guard commandant, sign the deed. Groton City Mayor Marian Galbraith and Norwich Mayor Deb Hinchey were there to witness it and to symbolize that the entire region will benefit from the museum.
