The house at Westport’s 157 Riverside Ave., across from Saugatuck Elementary School, was demolished today. Built in 1933, the 1 1/2-story cape had 1,366 square feet, is situated on a .18-acre property and changed ownership in September 2011 for $550,000. The house gained notoriety when the 70s rock band REO Speedwagon stayed there and released a song on their first album called “157 Riverside Avenue.” It was the WestportNow Teardown of the Day on Sept. 5, 2011.
