To honor the memory of plane crash victim Beverly Eckert of Stamford, Gov. M. Jodi Rell today ordered flags at Sherwood Island State Park in Westport to half-staff and directed that a single white rose be placed atop the park’s 9/11 Living Memorial.

Eckert’s husband, Sean Rooney, was killed in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Eckert was among the passengers on board Continental Flight 3407, which it crashed into a home in suburban Buffalo on Thursday evening, killing all 49 on board and one person on the ground.

According to published reports, Eckert was traveling to Buffalo for a weekend celebration of what would have been her husband’s 58th birthday.

“Beverly’s strength, passion and courage was – and will continue to be – an inspiration to us all,” Rell said.

Morning commuter traffic on busy Wilton Road was disrupted when a tree fell across the roadway near 318 Wilton Road. Some drivers had to detour through a private driveway to get around the downed tree.

A large tree fell and pulled down power lines on Jennings Court off Bayberry Lane near Long Lots Road.

About 25 customers were without power in the area, according to Connecticut Light & Power Co.

Honoring Our Heritage: 81 Clapboard Hill Road

WestportNow.com Image
This is another in the new WestportNow feature “Honoring Our Heritage” by Bob Weingarten, chair of the Westport Historical Society’s House Research and Plaque Committee and a Realtor with William Raveis Real Estate Company. The series highlights some of the more than 190 houses in Westport that display the Westport Historical Society plaque. Today’s entry is 81 Clapboard Hill Road owned by Judy and Charles Reid. They have recognized the heritage of their home by displaying a Westport Historical Society plaque identifying it as the Samuel Taylor house built in 1771. This house is one of the early capes in Greens Farms and is in the process of being considered as a Local Historic Property. The house was built by Samuel Taylor as part of 23 acres of land purchased from the Morehouse family then living on Clapboard Hill Road. The Reids purchased the house in 1963 after seeing it for the first time because it immediately appealed to both of them. Charles is a native of Westport, a painter and a member of the National Academy of Design. Judy became a resident in 1963. The Reids said that they “love living in Westport and are very interested in preservation.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Bob Weingarten for WestportNow.com
