Westport Historical Society Kings Highway North Historic District Walking Tour


Old Hill Road, Westport, CT Phone: (203) 222-1424.

3-4 pm.Edward F. Gerber, Past President of the Historical Society, will host a walking tour of the Kings Highway North Historic District Saturday, October 28, at 3 pm. The tour will be an opportunity for history buffs to learn about one of the town's oldest settled areas, some homes of which date to the mid-1700s. "I will talk about the fact that Kings Highway is a historic district and what that means," said Gerber. "We will tour one of the oldest houses in the district which is undergoing major restoration". Gerber said he will talk about the style of the houses and the fact that, although they were built from the early 1700s to the mid-1900s, "you can't tell the later houses from the older ones. The architects did a good job of blending old and new." Meet across from the cemeteries at the foot of Old Hill Road; park along Kings Highway North. $10 suggested donation. No charge for children 12 and under. Reservations are recommended: (203) 222-1424. Special get together at a local watering hole after tour.
