  1. HI Martha
    This image is wonderful! I am helping an artist research information about this Seaweed baths and Hotel in Westport and we’re looking for more information! Do you know anything more about it, or where this image comes from?

    • I don’t have any further information, but you might try James Kelly at oldwestport@gmail.com. He works with the historical society there and they are gathering information for a book to be released later this year.

    Its all gone now but when my family camped at the Roman Island campsite in the 70s it was ruinous and creepy but extant.

    I found this article recently.

    I visited Westport in 1998 and it was all gone by then.
