Remember Westport’s Enslaved Peoples


Monday, June 18 - October 31, 2018

All Day

As part of the  “Remembered: The History of African Americans in Westport” exhibit, WHS is memorializing the names of over 200 enslaved persons who made up an essential, but often overlooked part of our Town’s History.  Each name will be inscribed permanently on a brick in our Brickwalk.  Please sponsor a brick for $20 which covers cost of brick and installation at no profit to WHS.  


Upon the close of the exhibit in October 2018 we’ll invite the brick sponsors to an unveiling of this forgotten roster of names as a permanent part of Westport Historical Society. To order, click here.
