13. McKim, Mead and White in Naugatuck

To explore some of the most beautiful architecture in the region, go straight out of the Train Station's parking lot onto Cedar St.; at the stop sign take a left on Church St. On the left is a Post Office circa 1917 built in the Spanish Colonial Revival Style and to the right is St. Frances Church, circa 1890 designed in the Gothic Revival style.

A little further along, on the left, is the 1894 Neo-Classical Revival styled Library constructed by McKim, Mead and White of pink granite and crowned with a continuous frieze incised with names of famous authors. Fluted ionic columns and bronze lamp stands flank the recessed entrance of the Library that has an elaborate domed rotunda and a gold and red mosaic tiled floor. Across the street is the 1902 Congregational Church with its distinctive tower and elaborate entrance designed in Baroque/Neo Classical Revival style by McKim, Mead and White.
