139 Long Lots Road

Emily and Joshua Prince are honoring Westport’s heritage by displaying a Westport Historical Society plaque identifying their home at 139 Long Lots Road as the Joseph Jennings house, which was built 1871. George Fairchild built this house for an onion farmer Joseph W. Jennings on acreage he purchased from the Sherwood family. The Italianate-style farmhouse was built on a 50-acre farm extending to Bayberry Lane on the east. The Jennings family owned the house until 1928, although small parcels were sold off earlier. The Prince family purchased the house in 1999, after moving from Rowayton. They are proud to be only the fourth family to own this Westport home in 138 years.  Bob Weingarten for WestportNow.com
