Visit Our Award Winning Exhibit, On Us, As We Celebrate Black History Month!

Westport Historical Society is offering free admission to its award-winning exhibit Remembered: The History of African American’s in Westport during Black History Month. We encourage you to share this info widely! We’re eager and ready to welcome visitors to experience this groundbreaking installation!

The contributions of the African Americans who built Westport with their labor and perseverance, from its earliest settlement through the modern age, cannot be forgotten. It is our duty to hold up the truths of their remarkable stories to the light—particularly during Black History month. This is why WHS is waiving all admission fees to its award-winning exhibit Remembered: The History of African Americans in Westport to encourage the larger Fairfield County, state-wide and even tri-state community during the month of February so that as many people as possible feel empowered to visit the exhibit, without the hindrance of cost.
