Tomorrow is the day! Hope to see some of you there. The Westport Community Building has a very nice, large room – and we’ve set some tables and chairs up but we can add more depending on how many folks attend.
A couple of things to mention:
Don’t forget that the Decatur County Historical Society Museum will be open from 9am to 11am tomorrow. It is located at 222 N. Franklin St. in Greensburg.
Getting to Westport:
There is a detour sign as you drive south on Highway 3 from Greensburg to Westport. I’m not sure what the official detour route is but if you drive down Highway 3 past Letts to almost the road closed sign you can take a right on CR (County Road) 800 South. Drive west to CR 700 West (you could turn on CR 600 West but it looks smaller and narrower), turn left and take CR 700 West south to CR 1100 South – then turn left and you drive past the Westport Cemetery and into the small community of Westport. Go straight across Highway 3 and continue into town – the Westport Community Center is on the right. Here is a map from the Indiana atlas. (You’re basically driving a rectangle around the closure through beautiful lush corn fields). It probably adds less than 10 minutes to your drive.
There is parking in the front and along the sides (especially the west side) of the Community Building.
The entrance into the back large room of the community center is on the east side of the building along a short driveway. Unless it is too windy there will be a poster outside.
Having seen several drivers pulled over by police it appears that Westport P.D. takes it’s 20 MPH speed limit seriously! Drive safely through this tiny town.
