Fair Haven: Taking the Church Out of Church Street

Yes, it’s still called Church Street. But, no, there’s no longer any church fronting River Road at the intersection of the namesake spot in Fair Haven.

A few months after Kolarsick Builders’ plan for a three-home subdivision was approved by the Planning Board, one home looks nearly complete, another is framed and a foundation is dug for a larger one slated to front River Road while the others front, well, Church Street.

The street always comprised a close knit neighborhood comprised of many who keep in touch or remain close friends. Some even still live on the street.

They’ve been wondering lately what the street where they lived looks like. Here it is, old time Church Street people.

And, no, there are no plans to change the name to House Street.
