Jesup Green
Here stood the William H. Jessup House
Later owned by William Taylor.
On the river the Jessups built wharves
and warehouses in the late 18th
century where grain was stored awaiting
export by sail. The Saugatuck River
became a shipping lane resulting
in the incorporation of Westport
in 1835 from parts of Norwalk,
Fairfield and Weston.
