The Compo–Owenoke Historic District is a 154-acre (62 ha) historic district in Westport, Connecticut that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. It was described as being "architecturally significant as an exceptionally well-preserved and cohesive early-twentieth-century beach colony which developed between 1910 and 1940.":3
In 1990 it included 211 contributing buildings, one other contributing site, and one other contributing object. The district includes Compo Beach and two residential areas: Compo and Owenoke (a narrow peninsula extending from the Compo area). The district lies to the west of Sherwood Island State Park and to the east of the mouth of the Saugatuck River.
Most of the houses in the district were originally built between 1910 and 1940 and were intended for seasonal (summer) occupancy.
