Public Archaeology Laboratory (PAL), project consultants, have submitted to the Historic District Commission their Final National Register of Historic Places Nomination for the Bridge Street National Register Historic District.  The final nomination addresses all comments received from the Town of Westport and the State Historic Preservation office (SHPO) and meets SHPO and National Park Service (NPS) standards.  

The report states:

"The Bridge Street Historic District is a quiet, early nineteenth to mid-twentieth-century residential neighborhood that developed in response to the construction of a bridge across the Saugatuck River in 1872 and the subsequent platting of Bridge Street and Imperial Avenue in the late nineteenth century."  

This report has been submitted to the National Park Service by the SHPO for final review and approval for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
Listing in the National Register results in consideration in planning for Federal, federally licensed, and federally assisted project, eligibility for Federal tax provisions including tax credits for the rehabilitation of historic commercial, industrial, and rental residential buildings, and qualifications for Federal grants for historic preservation when funds are available.
