Welcome to the Town of Westport, Indiana!
An historic, small town located in Decatur County loaded with local pride and citizens who enjoy a simple way of life.
Decatur County’s wooden covered bridge, located 1.5 miles southeast of Westport just off County Road 1100 South, is the only covered bridge ever constructed in Decatur County.
The town of Westport was founded on March 23, 1836, by Hockersmith Merryman and Simeon Sharp. As there were only twenty lots in the original plat, the town itself was very small.
The Town Council meets every second Monday of each month at the Westport Town Hall at 7 p.m.
The historic Westport Town Hall is located at 207 Johnson Avenue.
ATTENTION: The Town of Westport is now looking and hiring for a seasonal worker for cemetery maintenance and
mowing. Please complete the application at our Employment Page and bring it with you to the Town Hall during normal business hours!
