More About Exhibit at Westport Museum for History and Culture: Becoming Westport

From the humble farmer to internationally famous robber barons, Westport is a town built by the contributions of many over the centuries. Like other New England coastal villages, Westport started out as an agricultural community that quickly diversified into trade, then evolved with commerce and industry into a factory town and, eventually, a bedroom community for nearby New York City.

Over its nearly four centuries of settlement, the area that would become Westport has been home to native people, European colonists, enslaved African Americans and immigrants from around the world. Its bucolic settings and beautiful beaches have lured artists, vacationers, health seekers and commuters.

Becoming Westport explores all aspects of the archetypes of those who collectively built the town including The Farmer, The Laborer, The Cleric, The Merchant, The Revolutionary, The Entrepreneur, The Artist and The Performer.

The exhibit will be on view through June 30, 2020.

Admission for exhibit: adults: $5; students & seniors: $3; members & children 10 and under: Free
