Where can I find a comprehensive history of the town on your site?

The Town of Westport’s history spans nearly four hundred years of post-European colonization and 7500 years of pre-European indigenous habitation. This is a lot of history! We address this history in exhibits and programs in order to explore each topic with extensive rigor. We do sell several books in our gift shop about local history and The Town of Westport’s official site also contains a town history as well.
