Incinerator (demolished) – Greenwich CT

Description

Greenwich, Connecticut’s town incinerator was constructed with the assistance of federal Public Works Administration funds during the 1930s. The structure, which served from 1938 to 1977, has since been demolished. The land now constitutes part of Christiano Park.

PWA Docket No. CT 1278 provided a grant of $72,192 to the town for the incinerator’s construction, which covered much of the project’s $169,914 final cost. Construction started in March 1938 and was completed in November of that year.
