Mattatuck Museum, 63 Prospect Street
Waterbury, CT 06702
The Green, which has been called “one of the most attractive downtown parks in New England,” was the city’s first center, with the buildings around it representing all types of uses, from residences to churches to public buildings. The Green still displays an attractive array of commercial, institutional, ecclesiastical and residential architecture as well as handsome landscape design and interesting and memorable monuments. Meeting in front of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception (74 West Main Street), this tour will include a walk inside St. John’s Episcopal Church and the Basilica and extend its reach down West Main Street to the glorious Palace Theater.
The Mattatuck Museum received support for this project from the State Historic Preservation Office with funds from the Community Investment Account of the State of Connecticut.
