Historic church demolished due to expensive structure issues

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) Crews began demolition work on a century old historic Connecticut church this week, despite a recent attempt to save it.

The former Trinity Episcopal Church on Prospect Street is more than a century old, but the Waterbury building's owners decided on demolition due to expensive structural problems with the building. Waterbury historian Raechel Guest tells WVIT-TV that she hoped there might be a way to save the building.

She says ``it's an important part of our history and it's an important asset for Waterbury that now is lost and being replaced with a parking lot.'' Guest says she hopes residents can direct their energies toward saving other historic buildings in the area that are at risk of demolition.
