Deal reached to save historic Norwalk home

NORWALK - A deal has been reached to save the Grumman Saint John House in Norwalk by restoring and renovating the Revolutionary War-era house.

The agreement will also allow the owners of the adjacent Norwalk Inn, who also own the home, to renovate and expand by building an additional story.

State senators Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) and Larry Cafero (R-Norwalk) helped broker the deal between the Norwalk Inn and the Norwalk Preservation Trust.

The Norwalk Inn owners purchased the home with the intention of knocking it down and expanding, but those plans were blocked by a lawsuit.

The first phase of the renovation could start as early as next spring.
