This past spring the Westport Historical Society (WHS) presented Project Return and the Town of Westport with a plaque honoring the heritage of the town-owned house at 124 Compo Road North used by Project Return since 1984. Bob Mitchell, president of WHS, presented the plaque to both Tessa Gilmore-Barnes, Project Return program director, and Jeff Wieser, executive director of Homes with Hope, saying: “We are recognizing Project Return for respecting and maintaining this almost 200-year-old house. We are also recognizing the town for its forward-looking attitude towards reuse of the property since 1901 for the good of the town.”
