Honoring Our Heritage: 7 Maple Ave. South

WestportNow.com Image
Debra Belanger is honoring Westport’s heritage by displaying a Westport Historical Society plaque identifying her home at 7 Maple Ave. South as the Samuel T. Jennings house which was built c.1858. The Jennings house was initially built at Post Road East and Maple Avenue South but moved sometime prior to 1952 to its current location when the Greens Farms Shell Service Center was built. Belanger purchased the house in 2006 and was told that “it was built in 1930” but during renovations she found beams and wide planked floors which indicated an early date. The early date of c.1858 was discovered during research by the Westport Historical Society.  Belanger said that it was an “absolute pleasure and a rich learning experience to restore this house.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Bob Weingarten for WestportNow.com
