The front door of Wheeler House — the Westport Historical Society’s downtown home — has not been used for 20 years.
Now the Avery Place door is open. Visitors stroll through the parlor of the 1795 home, en route to the exhibits in the back.
The “new” entrance debuted today. A large crowd enjoyed the opening of “The Curious Case of Ed Vebell.” The must-see show chronicles the incredible life of Westport’s beloved 96-year-old illustrator.
He sketched World War II, including the Nuremberg Trials. He drew Wheaties box covers, Muhammad Ali and Grace Kelly. He fenced in the Olympics.
Ed’s done much more too. See it all.
And when you’re there, check out the welcoming — and wide open — front door.
