Westerly

The picturesque downtown business district in this town of 18,000 people bordering Pawcatuck, Connecticut, has more than 55 structures on the National Register of Historic Places, galleries and artist studios, and a 14.5-acre Victorian strolling park. Once a busy little railroad town in the late 19th century, Westerly is now a stop on the New York–Boston Amtrak corridor. The town was

once known for its red granite used in monuments around the country. It has since sprawled out along U.S. 1 and grown to include seven villages—Westerly itself, or downtown Westerly, Watch Hill, Dunn's Corners, Misquamicut, Bradford, Shelter Harbor, and Weekapaug—encompassing a 33-square-mile area.
