Old Hill

Old Hill is an affluent enclave featuring historic homes and colonials from the Revolutionary and Victorian eras.  With a peaceful setting, scenic landscape and tree-lined drives, Old Hill is one of Westport’s most desirable neighborhoods.  It is designated as one of six historic districts in Westport known as Kings Highway North Historic District.  Old Hill is ideally situated directly across the Saugatuck River from Westport’s downtown business and shopping district, making Old Hill a convenient and access walk to town.

In the heart of the neighborhood is the Earthplace Nature Center.  Earthplace blends science, conservation, and education into pathways for learning about nature and the environment.  Earthplace consists of 62-acre nature and wildlife sanctuary, interpretive exhibits, 50+ animal ambassadors, educational programs for children, and a water quality research lab.  It also includes a preschool program, outdoor amphitheater, walking trails, picnic grove, and a 22,000 square foot learning center.  Just up the road from Earthplace is Patrick Wetlands, a 22-acre wetland site that was donated to Earthplace in 2007.  Also located adjacent to Earthplace is the Lillian Wadsworth Arboretum, a designated wetland offering hiking trails and picnic tables.

The Old Hill neighborhood is bordered by Saugatuck River to the East, the town of Norwalk to the West, the Merritt Parkway to the North, and Route 1 to the South.  Children in the Old Hill Neighborhood attend Kings Highway Elementary (grades K-6), Coleytown Middle School (grades 6-8), and top-rated Staples High School (grades 9-12).

Convenient to the Westport train station, easy access to both I95 and the Merritt Parkway, walking distance to town, and a peaceful wooded neighborhood make Old Hill one of Westport’s most sought-after neighborhoods.
