WHS is a historic house museum, centrally located in downtown Westport, across from the Westport Town Hall. Originally built in 1795, remodeled in 1865, it was remodeled to what we refer to as "mid-19th Century Victorian Italianate villa style." It has a flat roof cupola, decorative brackets, eyebrow windows and a gracious front veranda. In 2003, an elegant eight-sided gallery was added to the historic house to create a wonderful gallery space that is ideal for meetings and presentations. It is a charming venue for intimate gatherings, meetings and works beautifully for cocktail receptions for up to 125 people.. We have a large foyer that serves well for refreshments and a catering kitchen that is fully-equipped for all your reception needs.
