The Bedfords giveth.
And the Bedfords taketh away.
One of the town’s most philanthropic families — think the YMCA, schools, the Westport Woman’s Club and much, much more — has long owned property on Beachside Avenue.
But Ruth Bedford died last June, at 99. Now her estate, at 66 Beachside, is slated for demolition.
The sign notes that 3 buildings are intended to be torn down. All are 114 years old.
The Bedford family also owns a 2-story house at 225 Green’s Farms Road, opposite the Nyala Farms office complex. It too was built in 1900.
And it too is slated for demolition.
