Wakeman Town Farm (134 Cross Highway)
The Wakeman farmhouse on Cross Highway now has an historic marker from the Westport Historical Society. The Green Farms Initiative (GVI) team which now operates the Wakeman Town Farm and Sustainability Center at the site affixed the sign showing its 1908 vintage. Bob Weingarten, the official historic property researcher for the Westport Historical Society, conducted intensive research over the past year to verify the date the farmhouse was built. The town acquired the farmhouse and property from Isaac and Pearl Wakeman in 1970 and took it over following Pearl Wakeman’s death last year.
