The Oswegatchie Historic District is a historic district in the town of Waterford, Connecticut. The historic district is located at the peninsula known as Sandy Point at the mouth of the Niantic River and represents a concentration of upper class summer homes built at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. Increased leisure time and improved transportation led to the growth of resort areas like this along the Connecticut coast, and development at Sandy Point was spurred by the construction of a trolley line to the area in 1905. The only non-residential building in the district is the Oswegatchie Church, built in 1929.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1]
