Only at the Handy House Heritage Trail! As part of a continued effort to interpret the history of Westport’s forests and landscape, the Westport Historical Society, with the help of two voice-over artists, has given voice to some special trees along the Handy House Heritage Trail.
A new audio experience “Tree Talk” enables visitors to the trail to listen as each tree tells its own story about how they were put to use by early settlers and by Native Americans. Visitors will meet the magnificent white oak, tthe majestic white pine, the medicinal sassafras, the lustrous birch, and the hardy black gum. Their stories interconnect with themes of shipbuilding, medicine and food, heating, and tools for daily life.
The trail can be accessed from the Handy House main visitor parking lot, 202 Hix Bridge Road, Wesrtport. It is open dawn to dusk year round.
