3-4 pm. Join us for one of its most popular walking tours, a stroll through Old Saugatuck accompanied by guide Bob Mitchell. The one-hour tour begins at 3:00 pm and ends with a drink on the house at one of Saugatuck's favorite haunts, the Black Duck. As you make your way through the neighborhood that sits along the tracks near the Westport train station, Mitchell will discuss Saugatuck's past as a manufacturing hub and the tight-knit, predominantly Italian community it was to become. Most of what we now know as Westport was once called Saugatuck, after the river, though when the town was incorporated in 1835 from parts of Norwalk and Fairfield, it was given the name Westport.
