The district includes four properties- three properties on Jesup Road and the Town Hall at Post Road East, which is individually listed in the National Register. The Old Town Hall in Westport, Connecticut, is a 2 1/2 -story, masonry building with exterior cobblestone walls, heavy, quarry-faced brownstone trim, and a high, hipped, slate roof. The building is separated from the street by a front yard or court that is flat but is elevated above the grade of the public sidewalk along the street.

Architecture: The Old Town Hall in Westport is an eclectic combination of the use of cobblestones with a Neo-Classical Revival style architectural design.
