Historic Status for Maplewood Avenue Sought

By James Lomuscio

Westport’s Maplewood Avenue, a tucked away corner of early 20th century homes, moved closer to a historic district status today with the Board of Selectmen’s unanimous approval of a $4,500 contract to hire an architectural historian to conduct an inventory of the neighborhood.

The approval comes on the heels of last week’s teardown of 20 Maplewood Ave. and a neighborhood outcry.

Francis Henkels, chairman of the Historic District Commission (HDC), said that the funds to hire David Taylor of Brookville, Pa.-based Taylor & Taylor Associates, Inc. would be reimbursed to the town via an approved grant from the State Historic Preservation Office. Taylor’s contract runs from April 3 to early June, Henkles said.

Henkels described Maplewood Avenue as “a distinct corner of Westport,” a one-way street that does not get much traffic. He said that many of the 22 early 1900s houses have been in families for generations.
