Description

Though the buildings are long gone, the site of the Westport Sanitarium—one of two in Westport—still tells the story of public health. Follow our docent through the park and 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 cement path in-front of the parking lot along Compo Road North, a sign-in table will be visible.

Per State of Connecticut mandates, social distancing practices will be in effect and masks are required unless the use of a mask or cloth face covering by anyone for whom doing so would be contrary to his or her health or safety because of a medical condition.
