  • | 7:00pm - 8:00pm | Special Interest, spooky, vampire, folk beliefs, Halloween, archaeology
    - On Thursday, Oct. 19, from 7 to 8 pm, come to Westport Historical Society to hear the archaeological evidence of a hair-raising tale of discovery!

    In the winter of 1990, two boys were playing in a private sand and gravel mine in Griswold, Conn. Sliding down the slope of the pit, the boys dislodged two skulls, which tumbled down the embankment with them. Inadvertently, they had discovered the lost graveyard of a farming family from the 18th and 19th centuries.

    State archaeologists brought in to excavate the site discovered something curious: among the 27 bodies buried, one male had been rearranged in his grave. Research suggests that the re-interment was common to New England Vampire Folk Belief, in which the dead – or undead – had to be put back to rest.

    Nick Bellantoni led the dig. Now an Emeritus Connecticut State Archaeologist, he will share the rest of the story.

    Call (203) 222-1424 to reserve your spot to dig into vampire folk belief and the archaeological history of early New England.

    Donation: $10 at the door.

    Thank you to our sponsor, Bayberry Property Management and Leasing Company of CT.

  • | 7:45pm - | Shows, Festivals, and Fairs, holly-bowling-had, life-changing, experience, Phish show
    - Bowling presents her unique brand of classical piano, with renditions of songs taken from both the Grateful Dead and Phish catalogs this October.

    It may sound New Age-y, but classically trained pianist Holly Bowling had a life-changing experience at a Phish show. After experiencing the 37-minute Lake Tahoe version of “Tweezer,” she was so taken by the performance that she decided to transcribe the whole thing -- all four instruments -- and distill it into a composition to be played on piano.

  • | 12:30pm - 1:30pm | Local Events, architects, future view, creative visions
    - Westport Historical Society is looking to the future, and has invited some renowned and far-seeing local architects and developers to help us imagine what our town might become a half-century from now. Talks will be presented every Tuesday through December, starting Oct. 17, from 12:30 to 1:30 pm.

    They’ve shared their creative visions in the new WHS exhibit, 06880+50, and several of them will be featured in the Westport Architect Brown Bag Lunch Series in October and November. Completing the phrase, “Westport in 50 years…,” each architect or developer brings a thoughtful and unique perspective to the local community and its potential.

    Kicking off the series are David A. Waldman, President and Founder of David Adam Realty, and Frederick William Hoag, Principal of FWH Architects. The two are exploring ways to realize the concept, “Westport in 50 years… could re-purpose parking lots into parks: envisioning more green and less asphalt.” David A. Waldman and Frederick William Hoag have worked together on several notable and high-profile development projects in Westport, often combining historic preservation and modern redesign. Among their latest collaborations are Urban Outfitters, the commercial-residential site at 44 Church Lane, the relocation of the historic Kemper Gunn House, and the renovation of the 19th-century Sherwood House into The Spotted Horse Tavern.

    Recently recognized by the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce for achieving “great results” in transforming Westport’s downtown, David Waldman is part of the development team behind the new Bedford Square project. He serves as vice president of the Westport Downtown Merchants Association.

    With decades of architectural experience, Frederick William Hoag is a well-known and established commercial and residential architect in Fairfield County and far beyond. Among his many recognizable Westport commercial projects are the restaurants Harvest and Little Barn; and retail sites Soleil Toile, Patagonia, and 125 Main Street.

    The recital program will include the Brazilian Cycle of Heitor Villa-Lobos, Beethoven’s famous Moonlight Sonata, and Schumann’s Widmung, transcribed for the piano by Liszt. She will be joined by Ted W. Barr for Franz Schubert’s beloved Fantasy in F Minor (for four hands).

    GAYLE MARTIN achieved international prominence as sole American laureate of the sixth International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow—the third American woman ever to reach the finals. A native Texan, she was one of the last students of the famous pedagogue, Mme. Rosina Lhévinne at Juilliard. Martin has presented solo recitals and performed as concerto soloist with orchestras around the world. Her latest CD recording, To Keep the Dark Away, has received rave reviews and is available on Amazon.com. “This is an infinitely rewarding disc that demands repeated listening to get the most out of it.” (Fanfare Magazine)

    TED BARR joins Gayle Martin in piano duo performances in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. A Kentucky native, Barr is a graduate of Westminster Choir College and has taught on the faculties of Westminster, Rutgers, and Wagner College in New York City. He offers private instruction in voice, piano, and organ in Cherry Hill, N.J. His students have performed on Broadway, with major symphony orchestras and opera companies, in the world’s largest churches and cathedrals, and in television dramas.

    FAUST HARRISON PIANOS is the region’s exclusive and flagship dealer for new Yamaha, Bechstein, Bosendorfer, Fazioli and W. Hoffmann pianos, offering more than 750 of the world’s best-known instruments in four elegant showrooms in New York and Connecticut, and America’s largest independent retailer of fully rebuilt “golden era” Steinway pianos, which are produced in a 12,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art piano rebuilding factory in White Plains.

    - The Taoist Elixir Method, or Tao Tan Pai Basic 31 Meditations/Postures, collectively called "Cloud Hands"-- an authentic monastic Qigong system that promotes strong health and vitality and cultivates internal energy (Qi) for self-healing, vitality, and to empower martial art and healing art to super-normal levels. Over the course of this weekend, Master Dunn will teach you the entire system of 31 Basic Meditations--15 standing moving meditations and 16 seated meditations, thirteen of which involve gentle upper body movements. Good for all ages and excellent for athletes, the "TTP-31" are easier to do than Tai Chi. Taoist Elixir Method Qigong also works as a wonderful foundation and catalyst for Flying Phoenix Qigong practice, also taught by Master Dunn.

    The Taoist Elixir Method Qigong was created in the ninth century during China's Tang Dynasty and is attributed to Lu Deng Bin, the leader of the Eight Taoist Immortals (Saints). Terry Dunn learned the "Basic 31" along with the five higher levels of Taoist Elixir Method from 1976 to 1983 from Master John Davidson and from Taoist Priest Share K. Lew, the 23rd generation lineage holder of the Tao Tan Pai tradition. Master Dunn has been teaching this rare art since 1984.

  • | 3:00pm - 4:00pm | Local Events, history, walking tour, Westport
    - Edward F. Gerber, Past President of the Historical Society, will host a walking tour of the Kings Highway North Historic District Saturday, October 28, from 3 to 4 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.”

    Kings Highway North was established as a local historic district in 1972 and named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. It encompasses 106 “contributing buildings” – structures that add to the district’s historical qualities – and four historic sites. Most of the contributing buildings are homes in the Colonial style. The historic sites include a small triangular green at the intersection of Old Hill Road and Kings Highway North that was used as a military drill ground, the adjoining Christ and Holy Trinity and Church of the Assumption cemeteries across Kings Highway from Old Hill Road, and an earlier graveyard, laid out in 1740, at the northwest corner of Kings Highway North and Wilton Road. 


    Gerber will be accompanied on the tour by Edward Hynes, a specialist on the history of Westport during the American Revolution. Hynes will discuss the planned ambush by Continental troops under Benedict Arnold to fire cannons from the high ground on Old Hill down on British soldiers returning from a raid on Danbury to prevent them from crossing the river on the bridge below.

    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.

  • | 5:00pm - 6:30pm | Local Events, Meet, Author, Martha, Hall, Kelly
    - Martha Hall Kelly will speak about her historical novel and New York Times bestseller, “Lilac Girls,” immediately after the Annual Meeting, as part of Pequot Library's Meet the Author series. There will be a 30- to 40-minute author talk, followed by a Q and A session and book signing. Books will be available for purchase, and light hors d’oeuvres will be served.
    In her debut novel, Kelly reveals an incredible story of love, redemption, and terrible secrets during World War II. The novel is historical fiction, based on the true story of 72 Polish women who were imprisoned and experimented on at Ravensbrück Concentration Camp in Germany before Caroline Ferriday, an American philanthropist and former actress, brought them to the U.S. for rehabilitation and the trip of a lifetime. Kelly researched the story for over 10 years.
    “Lilac Girls” became a New York Times bestseller the week it was published in April 2016. Kelly lives in Connecticut and Martha's Vineyard. She worked as an advertising copywriter for many years, raised three wonderful children who are now mostly out of the nest, and is hard at work on the prequel to “Lilac Girls.”
    Pequot Library's Annual Meeting is free and open to the public. The Annual Meeting begins at 4:00 p.m.; guest speaker will begin at 5:00 p.m. All are welcome; only Friends of Pequot Library (Pequot Library Association) members can vote during the Annual Meeting.
