Westport was so named because it was the westernmost port in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. It was first settled by English colonists in 1670 as a part of the Town of Dartmouth by members of the Sisson family. The river, and the land around it, was called “Coaksett” in the original deed; the name, now spelled “Acoaxet,” now refers to the southwestern community along the western branch of the Westport River.

Like many areas in the region, Westport was affected by Wampanoag raiding parties during King Philip’s War. Several small mills were built along the Westport River, adding to its prosperity. In 1787, the growing town, along with the town of New Bedford, seceded from Dartmouth.

During the late 18th century, into the early 19th century, Paul Cuffee and his wife settled in the town. He was a Quaker businessman, sea captain, patriot, and abolitionist who developed a shipyard on the banks of the Westport River. Of Wampanoag and Ashanti ancestry, Cuffee became one of the richest free man of color in the United States at the time. He later helped the effort to resettle freed blacks to Sierra Leone in West Africa.

Several cotton mills operated along the river, the largest of which was at the junction of the river with Lake Noquochoke on the Dartmouth town line. The Macomber turnip traces its ancestry to seeds brought to Westport from the 1876 Centennial Exposition.[3] During the Second World War, a coastal defense installation was raised on Gooseberry Island. The town is now mostly residential, with a large farming community. Horseneck Beach State Reservation, located to the north and west of Gooseberry Island, is a popular summer destination for many in the area.[4]

Westport is a town in Bristol County, Massachusetts, United States. The population was 15,532 at the 2010 census. Summer population is nearly increased by one quarter by summer residents.

There are five historic“villages” or areas of Town known by different names  These are North Westport(known in former times as Westport Factory);”Westport Point” where Main Road meets the river “Central Village” with town offices, retail stores and businesses; “Head of Westport” at the head of the east branch of the Westport River; and “Acoaxet” or “Westport Harbor” which is between the west branch of the river and Rhode Island reached by driving through a tiny portion of Rhode Island.
