A little history

Well we need to start somewhere, right? Why not start at the very begining?

This Church you see here was the very first St. Mary's Catholic Church in Norwalk. It was located on the corner of St. Mary's Street and Milan Ave. The Rectory of it, still stands today, and is the brick house on the south corner. It's pictured below in the modern recreation of the picture above.

This is from the inside. If you notice, the little table by the altar with the flowers on it? Well we still have it! And for the most part, it's the only thing we have left of that church. (except for most of the bricks from this church, which were used in the building of the century house. But that's a different story for a different time.)

Have you liked reading this? Well a full history of St. Mary's can be found on the main website ( Just go to "Parish History by Mike Doughty" on the right sidebar!
