Welch’s Food Company – Since 1897, Welch’s Food Company has been a staple in Westfield. Located in downtown Westfield, with a picturesque backdrop of Lake Erie, this juice storage and processing facility has served the community for over a century.

Barcelona Lighthouse – This lighthouse has been standing tall since 1828, when Portland Harbor was declared a “port of entry” for the increased shipping on Lake Erie due to the opening of the Erie Canal.

Lincoln-Bedell Statue Park – Erected in 1999, statues of Abraham Lincoln and Grace Bedell stand in Westfield. Grace Bedell, a young girl from Westfield, wrote a letter to Mr. Lincoln in 1860, who at the time was a Presidential candidate, encouraging him to “grow whiskers and her brothers would vote for him and he would look nicer.”
