Women of Westport Point

The isolated cluster of houses at the end of Main Road has been home to whaling captains, fishermen, and farmers. Their names are recorded on the plaques that adorn each house. But, the Point was also home to their wives, mothers, and daughters. Moreover, in the 20th century, it attracted some remarkable female artists, writers, and unusual characters. This project seeks to unfurl their life stories, which are so closely tied to houses that line Main Road at Westport Point.

We would like to know more about the following women. We are seeking biographical information, photographs or associated documents. This list is a work-in-progress. If you have suggestions for additional women who lived at Westport Point, please let us know.
