Courtesy of Jeff Tarbox The Westport Island History Committee met over the weekend, braving the heat and humidity to further plan the History Day open house at Westport Island’s historic Town Hall from 1 to 5 p.m. There will be easels with photographs of people, houses and places the committee would like help in identifying. Committee members will help with answers or advice.
And for fun, the committee will conduct a scavenger hunt where visitors can search for and find a dozen items on display. The committee especially wants to encourage anyone with artifacts or documents relating to Westport Island’s history to bring them to share.
