Places to Visit, Things to Do!

Welcome to the Town of Westfield! Population 4,986 according to most recent census. Click here or here to learn more about our town! Just a few interesting facts about Westfield:
Welch's Grape Juice: Founded by Thomas Bramwell, (who happened to be a dentist!) and wanted a non-alcoholic alternative of wine to serve in his church. He later quit the dental profession to make grape juice! The first Welch's factory was located in Westfield built in 1893
Grace Bedell: She was the little girl who wrote President Lincoln asking him to grow a beard. Stating "all the ladies like whiskers!" This statue can be seen in the middle of town.
