Destination Westport Walking Tour Series

How well do you know the history of Westport? Everyday locations around the town have a rich past but many don’t know the true extent of the history surrounding them. Explore several locations around Westport to learn about the people and events that tell Westport’s story. 


Each tour has been customized for Continuing Education, and will expand on the previous location’s history. Whether you’re a newcomer or a longtime resident, the series has something for everyone.

  1. Women of Westport (Main Street) 
  2. Industrial Boomtown (Saugatuck) 
  3. Taking the Cure (Winslow Park) 
  4. Colonizers, Witches and Patriots (Greens Farms Colonial Cemetery) 
  5. Activism and Struggle (Downtown)
