To quote Bob Dylan, “The Times They Are A Changin’”, as is the face of Main Street. Work began this week on 31 Main Street, and this old site is undergoing another facelift.
Over the many years of Westport’s history, 31 Main has housed the boat-building factory of James and George Conley, Conley’s Garage, Dave’s Marina, the mall, and more.
As I am no poet, the following is a photographic ode to 31 Main Street – The Conley Years.
During the 30s, Main Street was home to a hardware store, and the telephone company was on the east side of the street. Conley’s Garage at 31 Main can be seen just beyond the truck.
