Westport Sanitarium Walking Tour

Posted by Barbara Peck on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at 3:00 PM

Though the buildings are long gone, the site of the Westport Sanitarium—one of two in Westport—still tells the story of public health.


Join us on Sunday, Oct. 20, from 9:30 to 10:30 am as our docent takes you through the park. Discover the tales of the administrators, doctors and patients that lived and worked in the sanitariums accompanied by images of the time. Hear tales of heartbreak, control, medicine, life and death. 


Meet on the corner of Post and Compo Road outside of Winslow Park on the sidewalk, signs will be visible. 


Online pre-registration $8 for members, $12 for non-members. At the door, $10 suggested admission for members, $15 for non-members.  Reservations are recommended, register at www.westporthistory.org or call (203) 222-1424 x5.  


Month-long Spooktober Tickets are available online as well.
