History in the Rain

WestportNow.com Image
Light rain today did not deter history buffs from attending a walking tour through the Old Saugatuck section, led by Bob Mitchell (green jacket), president, Westport Historical Society. Among the historical sites discussed by Mitchell included the Saugatuck Grain & Supply Company, Luciano Park, the Westport Bank & Trust branch office, the Hedenbury Tin Shop, the Baynham Coffin Tack Factory, the first Saugatuck firehouse, the mattress factory, the William F. Cribari Bridge (the oldest movable span in Connecticut), and the Saugatuck Manufacturing Company, which made buttons from Brazilian ivory nuts. In addition, he told stories based on people who grew up in Saugatuck when life was simple and family ties strong. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
