Demolition of Historic Trinity Church

Today, Tuesday, October 9, 2018, is a sad day in the historic timeline for the City of Waterbury. Cranes and demolition crews began very early in the morning after a 3-day weekend, seemingly before anyone knew just how immediate the demolition plans were.

See the 'media coverage' page for stories from the evening news which featured video showing the destruction of the beautiful structure that was once Trinity Episcopal Church. Even as demolition was under way, the number of people signing the online petition had approached 900 in little more than 24 hours. This will hopefully serve as a wake up call for everyone. If we appreciate our history, we need to be willing to share our time and expertise and yes, sometimes funds, to preserve it.
