06/26/2016 to 08/21/2016

25 Avery Place, Westport, CT Phone: 203-222-1424.

Join us for a tour of Old Mill at Compo Cove, the inspiration behind our summer exhibit "the beautiful POND" led by artist Judith Orseck Katz and Robin Tauck of Tauck Tours. "Come walk with me," the artist writes, "to the Mill Pond, out over the bridges that float above the water, where you're suspended between the arc of the sky and the sky's reflection." This is an opportunity to see the bridges, marshes and wildlife that surround the beautiful mill house, which Katz calls "the seed of the birth of Westport". Meet at the Guard Booth located in Old Mill Beach Parking lot. Reservations are required. There is a $10 donation. To reserve, call 203-222-1424. The Compo Cove walking tours are being offered on the following dates: Sundays, June 26, July 10, July 31 and August 21.
