Mystic Connecticut Howard Johnson's
Brochure ca. 1960s: Dan Donahue
Mystic, Connecticut --179 & 253 Greenmanville Ave @ I-95
AKA Mystic-Groton
An excellent location immediately along I-95, the Mystic Howard Johnson's complex was officially opened in about 1969. Virtually unchanged for nearly 25 years the Lodge remained a Howard Johnson's until 1995. During the middle 1990s, it lost its HJ moniker and became a part of the Darien Hospitality Group (see also Darien and East Lyme), and was remodeled. Mystic rejoined the Howard Johnson chain in 2000.
