The antique red clapboard and stone barn-turned-house at 232 Compo Road South dates back to the 19th century.
Weingarten concluded: “Although there is no documented evidence that can pin-point the actual built date of the barn structure we can come to an educated guess as to when the barn was originally constructed. We use the documented information from Judge Adams as an indication of age when he mentioned that “Patrick Horrigan got the house on the corner of Ferry Lane from the Burritts in 1878.”
Further, he said in October 2014, “As a realtor and the Westport Historical Society House Historian I had the opportunity to inspect the property in 2011. Although I’m not an architectural historian I believe that the original barn was built in the mid-to-late 1800s because of interior features … using deeds, tax information, maps, Judge Adams’ discussion, it would seem appropriate to identify the barn built date as of c. 1866,” Weingarten said in documentation provided by the listing agent.
