New Haven Stations, Past and Present
Sunday, October 4, 2020, 4pm
By Bruce Clouette
This illustrated virtual presentation will look back at the several railroad stations that have served New Haven, including Henry Austin’s Picturesque-Exotic 1849 Chapel Street Station and Cass Gilbert’s Renaissance Revival 1918 Union Station. Many factors went into the design of these stations: public convenience, the needs of the railroad, civic pride. Yet no station was a complete success, at least not for very long.
The presentation will be given by historian Bruce Clouette, who has been active in the fields of Connecticut history and historic preservation since 1975. He was one of the contributors to Carriages and Clocks, Corsets and Locks, a publication of the New Haven Preservation Trust, for which he has also led several summer walking tours.

Honoring William Lanson

The City of New Haven and the Amistad Committee will be unveiling the William Lanson statue, and cordially invite you to mark your calendars. William Lanson was an integral figure in the diverse city we live in today, and it is important we honor his contributions to the Elm City and to our Country.

He was a runaway slave: a leader in the struggle for the right of free Blacks to vote; one of the founders of the Temple Street Church (now Dixwell United Church of Christ); harbored runaway slaves; owned Wooster Square.  Lanson succeeded at most everything he aspired to accomplish by pushing open and bravely walking through doors that were closed to him and other formerly enslaved and freemen/women in 19th century America. He did it by turning empty, mostly “undesirable” land into vibrant neighborhoods filled with housing for marginalized, invisible people. He did it employing Black people in the construction of New Haven’s early infrastructure. And he also spoke out on behalf of those whose voices were ignored. Unfortunately, Lanson was later charged with crimes and jailed simply because of the color of his skin.

Share your suggestions with the
Wooster Square Monument Committee

After the Columbus Statue removal on June 24, a decision was made to replace it with an appropriate memorial to honor the Italian-American experience. I recently appointed the Wooster Square Monument Committee to decide how best to honor the contributions of Italian-Americans in New Haven through a collaborative community process. That Committee, chaired by Laura Luzzi and Bill Iovanne, Jr. has met several times. The Committee just announced that any interested person may submit their concept or vision for this public art project. Submissions may, but need not, include details about how that concept or vision can be realized. While there is broad latitude for suggestions, the existing base/pedestal will remain. Ideas must be submitted to the Committee via by midnight on October 12, 2020.
