An enterprising businessman in the late 1800s, had the vision of creating land that would jut out into Greenwich Cove. Edward Lucas transported, by barge and horse drawn wagon, rock and fill dirt from land being excavated to build the New York subway system. He used these materials to form the perimeter of the point of land. He then used organic silt from the area excavated from a local cove and then covered the silt with topsoil. He then proceeded to construct a summer colony of large cottages some of which still exist today. A sales brochure from 1913 describes the neighborhood as a “cottage colony surrounded on all sides by water”. He subsequently named the area Lucas Point, and it was eventually incorporated in Connecticut in 1942.
