Westport, MA 02790
Built in 1888 to protect sailors along this dangerous stretch of Buzzards Bay’s coastline, the Horseneck Point Life-Saving Station was restored and reopened as a visitor center in 2009 by the Westport Fishermen’s Association. Today, the Lifesaving Station is managed by the Buzzards Bay Coalition, following the Coalition’s merger with the Westport Fishermen’s Association.
Admission to the Life-Saving station is free. In keeping with current public health regulations, however, all visitors will be asked to wear a mask while inside the station. In addition, visitors may be asked to wait outside if the building is at capacity.
