The Grumman-St. John House

The Grumman-St. John House has witnessed more than 265 years of Norwalk’s history and even survived the burning of the city by the British during the Revolution. It now faces a similar fate if the Norwalk Inn & Conference Center’s plan to expand its facilities is approved. Local preservationists and the state of Connecticut argue that there are legal alternatives to demolition and claim that the building is protected by state law. The issue has moved into litigation, and in February the Stamford/Norwalk Judicial District Superior Court issued a temporary stay of demolition. For more information, contact the Norwalk Preservation Trust: 203-853-7495;
