Allen’s Clam House Coming Down Today

Allen’s Clam House, a Westport landmark for more than a century, is coming down today.

The former restaurant, now town-owned, will be demolished after years of debate over what to do with the Hillspoint Road property. It will become a park.

Workers Monday found an abandoned fuel tank on the property and had to dig out soil around it.

The town bought the property in 1999 for $1.2 million, some of it contributed by neighbors and other Westporters.

A last-ditch effort by town historian Allen Raymond before the Board of Finance and then the Representative Town Meeting to save the building failed.
