Bits and Pieces of Westport

This photo essay takes you on a unique tour of Westport’s scenic roadways, historical points of interest, landmarks, monuments, and some of the area’s splendor and interest not found in our other essays.

Our town and other major conservation groups are making a major effort to safeguard this core value by protecting open spaces through land acquisition. The Herb Hadfield Conservation Land is an example of what can be done through the combined efforts of our Town Boards, taxpayers, preservation groups (e.g., Westport Land Conservation Trust), and concerned citizens.
