The house at 56 Sylvan Road North is among the seven winners of the Westport Historic District Commission 2014 Preservation Awards to be presented in a Town Hall ceremony at 7 p.m. on Thursday. The HDC said the award to Jennifer and A. Morris Tooker, owners of the Clark Nash House circa 1790 house, is in recognition of “the meticulous care of this property, purchased by the owners in 2008, coupled with its sympathetic addition to the rear of the property for use as a mudroom and breakfast room.” It noted after a succession of owners, H. Daniel Webster, sculptor of Westport’s Minute Man statue, purchased the house in 1906. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
