Historic Site
Danbury’s First Episcopal Church occupied this site from 1763 until 1884. In 1777, British troops, led by General Tryon, took military stores from the church and burned them in the nearby street, but spared the edifice.
Three public schools have stood on this site. The third forms the older part of this school and was built in 1936. In 1947 the Episcopal graveyard, located between the school and the sidewalk was cleared of graves and markers, which were transferred to the original town cemetery located on Wooster Street.
