Have you ever wondered why those cannons sit on Compo Beach? Where F. Scott Fitzgerald lived during that infamous summer in Westport? Who folks like Bedford, Coley and Staples really were?You’ll learn all that – and much, much more – on a tour of town with “06880” blogger/Westport News columnist Dan Woog.
He knows where most of the bodies are buried (figuratively and literally). You’ll see parts of Westport you never knew existed, and hear tales of places you’ve passed a thousand times. You’ll learn about the wharves of the Saugatuck River – and the tight-knit Saugatuck community. You’ll hear stories about islands like Gorham and Cockenoe (including the one about nuclear power plants). You’ll find out how Longshore was saved from becoming a housing development, and why the Minuteman statue has become a symbol of our town.
Whether you’ve lived here a few days or many decades, this is the tour of Westport you’ve always dreamed of taking.
