While the town contains a central municipal/civic area (Central Village), Westport is made up of many smaller and somewhat independent activity areas. The early creation of a network of villages led to a number of unique cores around which settlement grew. Each of the town’s villages has its own history, although common themes, represented in the current study by specific historic research contexts, bind the various communities into a whole.
