About Arlington Acres
A Brief History of Arlington Acres

In the late 1950s, Rhode Islanders Shirley and Jack Moran (from the Arlington neighborhood of Cranston), expanded their trailer sales business by opening a mobile home sales lot in Groton, Connecticut, close to where Wal-Mart is today. Then, in the 1960s, Shirley and Jack, along with Shirley's parents, Earl and Hattie Blinkhorn, developed the 150-site mobile home park and named it Arlington Acres. It soon became know as one of the finest mobile home parks in New England. In 1986, Jeffrey P. Ossen, an attorney from Mansfield, Connecticut who became a full-time developer and operator of manufactured home communities, purchased the park. In 2011, Nicolas Furlotte, a community owner from Groton, acquired Arlington Acres.
