WestportNow.com ImageWestportNow.com Image
The newest recipients of an historical plaque from the Westport Historical Society (WHS) are the owners of two homes on Maplewood Avenue. The Ackerman family, George, Emily and their daughter, Sophie, 1, owners of the house at 10 Maplewood Ave., now known as the Walsh House, built circa 1927, and Fiona Hodgson, owner of the house across the street at 11 Maplewood Ave., now known as the Mary Walsh House, built circa 1911. Bob Weingarten, WHS plaque historian, presented a plaque to owners. According to Weingarten’s historical research, the land on which the two houses were built was, prior to 1910, part of a 24-acre farmland owned by the Morehouse family.

Developer Pleased with Public Support for Text Amendment

By James Lomuscio

Westport developer David Waldman said today he was pleased with the support town officials expressed at Thursday night’s Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) meeting for his Riverwalk District text amendment that he says will benefit the town as well as his planned development.

“What we’re looking forward to is a very direct correlation with the public good,” said Waldman.

Waldman plans to build a two-story, 25,000-square-foot office building at the 2.54-acre former Save the Children (STC) site, plus a three-story residential building for between 15 and 17 condominiums. As part of the project, he plans to move the historic structure at 1 Wilton Road to the STC site, allowing the problem intersection at Wilton Road and the Post Road to be expanded by one lane.

“The piece of property is the last piece of the downtown (revitalization) plan,” Waldman said.
