The SPA

Once farmland bought from the American Indians and tended by English settlers, then a summer play land for the wealthy, Shippan Point is steeped in history and one of Stamford’s most desirable neighborhoods. Now, its wide, mile long main avenue, multiple beaches and beautiful homes make the perfect setting for families to flourish year round.

The Shippan Point Association was formed in 1902 and sought to protect the beauty of the neighborhood.  Today, the SPA continues to protect and beautify the area while building a community through neighborhood events, regular information meetings, tree planting, police patrol and much more.

Becoming a member of the Shippan Point Association is an important part of becoming involved in the community and maintaining the strength and integrity of the neighborhood we all have chosen to make our home. Our dues are just $30 per year and $15 per year for seniors 65+. Our Membership application is available here: SPA membership form.
