Southport Walking Tour

Southport’s historic heritage and charming beauty is the focus of a walking tour set for Saturday, July 22 at 9:30 a.m. starting from the steps of Pequot Library, a landmark building constructed in 1887.

The walking tour, sponsored by the Town of Fairfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee and the Fairfield Museum and History Center, is open to the first 30 adults who sign up in advance. The walking tour is priced at $5 for Fairfield Museum members and $8 for non-members. The walking tour covers about 1.5 miles and will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. The rain date for the event is Sunday July 23 also starting at 9:30 a.m.

The tour will touch upon the native American tribal history, the colonial period, the war of 1812, the golden era of the Southport Globe Onion boom, the implications of the arrival of the steamship, railroad and streetcar, notable residents and other topics. Starting from the lawn at the library, the guided walk and talk will proceed south down Westway to Harbor Road to Ye Yacht Yard, back along Harbor Road to Main Street, to Southport Center at Pequot Avenue and then back to the Pequot Library.

Note:  Since this walk coincides with the library’s annual summer book sale, there is limited parking at the building. Additional space is available at nearby churches, along streets and at the Southport train station.
