Town's Rich History
The Town of Westport was founded on March 23, 1836. As there were only twenty lots in the original plat, the town itself was very small. However, nearly all of the land in Decatur County had been purchased by that time. It is one thing to talk about Westport as a town, but quite another to talk about it as a community. There were many people living nearby in 1836, but not in the actual town.

From the Covered Bridge Festival, Annual Fall Festival, Kiwanis BBQ and Car Show, Cruise-Ins, Santa’s Village, Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, Annual Health Fairs, Dog Shows, Traveling Circus, Local Bands, Plays and more, Westport offers it’s residents plenty to do and enjoy. Be sure to add it to your calendar to come and visit us sometime.
