Lifesaving Station Summer Hours

The Horseneck Point Lifesaving Station summer hours begin on June 25th.  The HPLSS is located at 241 East Beach Rd in Westport, MA and will be open to the public on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 12 to 4 PM. Stop in to explore one of the last remaining of the 69 lifesaving stations built along the coast by the Humane Society of Massachusetts. These stations were constructed to provide volunteers with easy access to a rescue boat to help save passengers and crew on shipwrecked vessels.

A group of WFA volunteers has started meeting to develop more information and programming for the LSS. If you are interested in helping out with this effort or in serving as a docent to help share the LSS’s maritime history on one or more weekend days during July and August, then email [email protected].
