BANNER LODGE

Samuel (Pop) Banner's farm turned into perhaps the most successful Moodus resort of the 1930s to the 1960s. A rural atmosphere, lots of good food, great sports facilities, a social scene and celebrity-studded entertainment were just some of the amenities that kept guests coming back year after year.
