19. A Classic Green

From City Hall, Retrace your steps on East Ave.  Along the way you will pass Norwalk’s classic 18th century New England Green.  The First Congregational Church, on the green was organized in 1652 as a separate society from the town of Norwalk in 1726.  The present day church is the fifth on this site and is a classic example of Federal architecture.

Nearby, the Episcopal Church of St. Paul's Parish built their first church in 1743.  In 1779, the church was burned down by General Tryon during the raid of Norwalk and was rebuilt in 1785.  The church you see today was built in 1840.
