Article on King's Block Bicentennial Celebration

‘All Hail the King’s Block at Bicentennial’

Posted on October 2, 2016 by Karin • Filed under: , , ,

Our Open House and the bicentennial celebration of our building – King’s Block – in Fair Haven is covered here in an article by The New Haven Independent. Last Thursday, we hosted about 60 people who celebrated and toured our office on the first floor and the shared conference space on the third floor.
Deb Townshend, one of the key owners who saved the building in the 1980s was on hand to answer questions about the era when this section of the neighborhood was slated for demolition to make way for a bigger bridge across the Quinnipiac River. We are thankful for the ringing of the historic turning bridge, whose presence reminds of us that we almost lost many relics of Fair Haven’s past.
Thank you to all who attended and help celebrate our venerated building.

From the article:

‘King’s Block, with its view of the bridge, the river, and the park nearby, at the historic center of where Fair Haven emerged as a vibrant cultural hub, is the perfect spot.
Full disclosure: This reporter lives down the block on Front Street and is delighted to see the building every day, like a reliable old friend, always there. So, happy 200th, King’s Block.’
