Baron’s South Corner Sold to Bank for $5.8 Million

WestportNow.com Image
The privately-owned corner of Westport’s Baron’s South property at Compo Road South has been sold to Fairfield County Bank for $5.8 million. The bank plans to use the 1.56-acre parcel at the southwest corner of the busy intersection for an office building and drive-in bank branch. The land adjoins the town-owned Baron’s South property of 22 acres purchased in 1998 for $7 million. With the purchase, there will be banks on three corners of the intersection of Post Road East and Compo Road. Only the northwest corner with town-owned Winslow Park (from where this picture was taken) will remain bank-free. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WestportNow.com photo

Crampton suggested refilling small water bottles to be used several times before being recycled.  “Aren’t you glad you don’t have to put water in your gas tank,” he asked. “The price would be higher than gas.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com
