After 102 Years, Minute Man Statue to Become Historic

WestportNow.com Image
Westport’s Minute Man statue, erected in 1910, is about to officially become historic. The Westport Historic District Commission voted unanimously Tuesday night to approve a request by First Selectman Gordon Joseloff to establish a study committee leading to a local historic landmark designation of the property. The request followed removal of the original iron wrought fence around the statue by the Parks and Recreation Department and replacement with a modern version—a move made without consulting the HDC. The original fence has been preserved pending restoration. (See WestportNow May 9, 2012) (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
