Norwalk Preservation Trust
Sunday, May 5th, 3pm. Join the Norwalk Preservation Trust at the South Norwalk Public Library for a screening of Survival of a Small City, a documentary by Nancy Salzer and Pablo Frasconi that explores the pros and cons of urban renewal in South Norwalk from 1984 to 1986. A panel discussion will follow the screening, featuring several people who appear in the film, including Bill Collins, Norwalk's mayor at the time, former NEON Director Bobby Burgess, architectural historian Mimi Findlay, and others. For details, see Events.
Sunday, September 15th, 1pm. Hop aboard the Norwalk Trolley and travel back in time along some of Norwalk's trolley routes in existence from the 1860s to the 1930s. Stop and explore historic sites on the route, including buildings in Sono and Rowayton. Reenactors will entertain and offer insight along the way. For more information, see Tours.
The remarkable exterior restoration of the Grumman St. John House changed the face of this part of East Avenue. NPT's use of the Connecticut Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) brought about a result that was both precedent-setting and instrumental in the preservation of this significant building. Join NPT now and your name will be entered in a drawing to win a "backstage" tour for four of the restored Grumman-St. John house followed by lunch at the elegantly updated Norwalk Inn.
