Linxweiler House

Announcement Date: January 1, 1984

Mrs. Linxweiler bequeathed her Post Road home to the Town of Westport in 1981. In 1983, Interfaith Housing Association suggested using it as a half-way house for five single male recovering alcoholics. It was used for that purpose until 2007 when it was repurposed as an emergency shelter for two families. It remains part of the Bacharach Community serving single mothers and their children.
