Norwalk church closes after almost 150 years
The East Avenue United Methodist Church of Norwalk is closing after almost 150 years due to declining attendance and financial problems.
Jacqueline Watson Dayton says she has been a member of the church for 75 years and that the church has become like a home.
"Our children were baptized here," Dayton said. "We were married here. I taught Sunday school here."
The church will merge with Norwalk United Methodist Church on West Avenue to form a new church which will be known as Cornerstone Community Church.
