Pic A Week #38 – Church at Historic Johnsonville
In Moodus, CT on Johnsonville Road is a group of neglected old buildings which were formerly known as “Historic Johnsonville”. I remember visiting once back in the early 80’s when the building would be all decorated for Christmas with themed displays inside the windows of the buildings and homes. Now they are all deteriorating, some have fallen down, with the newest additions being “No Trespassing” signs all over the place.
There isn’t much out there to find for details on Johnsonville, but here are couple articles I came across: “For Sale’ Signs Up at a Connecticut Tourist Village” [nytimes.com, 1994] and “Tribute to Raymond Schmitt” [dodd.senate.gov, 1998]
