Destination Westport: Westport Sanitarium

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

The images below supplement our walking tour of the site: we encourage you to follow along with your guide to learn more about the cast of characters that lived and worked in the sanitarium.

Tour docents will specify when a stop or story has an associated image.
