Westville is a neighborhood west of downtown near the West River. One of the main callings of the area is the Yale stadiums and facilities for football, baseball, tennis, and golf. Originally settled as a farming village, it eventually grew to include wide, elm-shaded streets lined with gracious homes that appeal to today’s active families.
The neighborhood is still anchored by a village center of boutiques, antique stores, restaurants, and take-outs. The Hopkins School is in Westville and is one of the oldest private schools in all of the US.
