As with most of the towns located in New England, the roots of the town of Westport are in Native Americans who often visit this place many years ago. Compo, which is the fishing ground of the bear, and Saugatuck, the tidal river’s mouth, come from early tribe of Paugussett.

The colonial inhabitants came from Weston, Norwalk and Fairfield, with parts that included Westport. The river became the dividing line between Fairfield and Norwalk and is essential to farmers as a trail to the markets. A small village of stores, warehouses, a tavern, and wharves were developed on the two sides of the river to be the Village of Saugatuck. In 1711, Green’s Farms Congregational Church was constructed in Westport. It was the town’s first church and served as the hub of all the activities in this place, from collecting taxes to operating schools. Churches finally flourished in the town to make it an interfaith neighborhood.

The Village of Saugatuck started to thrive as a shipping center following the Revolutionary War. The leading resident, Daniel Nash, along with the other 130 villagers, create   d an application in 1830s to the Connecticut General Assembly to include Westport as a village or city. The economy’s nature, having an importance on coastal shipping and farming, had some bearing on the decision. On May 28, 1835, the charter was approved.

There were factories and mills, Toquet Manufacturing Company, and Kemper’s Tannery (now Westport Country Playhouse) by the end of 19th century. The artists found Westport around 1910, and the place became a nationally recognized beehive of educational activity. The Famous Writers School and Famous Artists School were constructed here and have been drawing talents throughout the US.
