Turtle replica on display at the Royal Navy submarine museum

In 1976, a re-creation of the first submarine ever used in battle, the American Turtle, was designed by Joseph Leary and constructed by Fred Frese as a Bicentennial project. It was christened by Connecticut's governor, Ella Grasso, and later tested in the Connecticut River. It is owned by the Connecticut River Museum and is currently on loan to Old Saybrook Senior High School, where students under the direction of Fred Frese are currently building a working re-creation of that model.

Old Saybrook High School is also known for its athletics and art programs. The 2012 wrestling and 2005 boys' basketball teams won their respective state championships.
