Westport, N.Y., depot, c.1980s.

In this artistic composition, the viewer catches a glimpse of the sign for the Westport depot against a silhouette of the building's distinctive cupola.

The Victorian-era passenger depot was built in 1875-1876 for the Delaware and Hudson Company (D&H) and was later expanded in 1891 and again in 1908. In 1974 the building was sold to the town of Westport for $1, with a long term lease on the land from the D&H. Two years later, the Westport Historical Society initiated a major restoration. Since 1979, the building has housed the Depot Theater, which presents a season of performances each summer.
