Tag Archives: Kowalsky farm
Once upon a time, there was open space in Westport.
Gradually, throughout the first 70 or so years of the 20th century, it disappeared. Farmland gave way to houses. Trees were cut down to make roads. Fortunately, a few spots were preserved as, well, “preserves.”
These days, it’s hard to find undeveloped land anywhere in town.
But not impossible.
There are 10 or 12 acres on Clapboard Hill, between South Morningside and South Turkey Hill. It’s called the Kowalsky property. And though from time to time you’ll see “For Sale” signs there, it’s still a throwback to an earlier Westport.
The property — specifically, a curious-looking tree stump in the middle of it — was the subject of last week’s photo challenge. Hailey Nusbaum, Susan Ellis, Elaine Marino, Wendy Cusick, Andrew Colabella, Judith Brown and Shirlee Gordon all correctly identified it. (Wendy, of course, added important background details.) Click here to see the photo, and all the guesses.
As for this week’s photo challenge: Yeah, we know it’s a men’s room.
But where? The answer will astonish you. (NOTE: Photographer Alan Phillips is pretty sure that the women’s room looks similarly nice. Without, of course, the urinals.)
