On the Market: Stone barn-turned-house in Westport dates back to 1800s

Two historic barns at 124 Compo Road South in Westport are included in a survey of barns in the state and listed on the Historic Barns of Connecticut website, a project of Preservation Connecticut, formerly called the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation.

Perhaps surveyors should have traveled a bit farther down that road to 232 Compo Road South to include on their list the antique red clapboard and stone barn-turned-house at that address. It's on the market for $1,900,000.

Town assessment records indicate it may have been built in 1900 but other documentation and evidence unearthed by Bob Weingarten, house historian for the Westport Museum of History and Culture (formerly the Westport Historical Society), suggests the "Burritt's Barn" was possibly erected decades earlier.
