This morning’s post about Kid Gloves — the boxing gym where heavyweight boxer Floyd Patterson once trained — offered a fascinating look back at a brief, forgotten piece of Westport history.
It also contained one error. The Nash’s Barn building on Kings Highway North — behind what was once the Small Car Company, and most recently was Dragone Classic Motorcars — was not torn down.
The Revolutionary War-era structure still stands. It’s now home to Nice Threads, a custom logo-wear and promotional products company.
The owner is Tim Nash — a descendant of the original property owner (for whom the nearby pond is also named). The family has owned the barn since 1784.
The barn has undergone many incarnations. Thanks to the stewardship of the Nash family, it will likely see many more.
