Honoring Our Heritage: 188 Cross Highway

WestportNow.com Image
The owners of 188 Cross Highway are the newest recipients of a Westport Historical Society (WHS) historical plaque. Bob Weingarten, WHS plaque historian, presented the plaque to Wendy Van Wie and Mark Yurkiw, who bought the house in 2003 when it was in foreclosure and abandoned, according to Van Wei. The couple meticulously restored the house while also saving the two original fireplaces. According to Weingarten, the house, known as the Meeker House c. 1728, is the oldest of the many Meeker houses in the Cross Highway area. It was built in c. 1728 by Samuel Meeker and remained in the Meeker family for five generations until 1917. Its front door has an indentation caused by a British-fired musket ball, according to historic records. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
