Old Saugatuck Walking Tour

Tours

Saturday, May 16, 2015

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The walk will begin at the train station, where rail service was launched in 1848, making Westport more accessible for visitors and, in turn, giving residents better access to New York City.

In 1958, a swath of buildings bisecting Saugatuck was demolished to make way for the Connecticut Turnpike.
