WEST HAVEN, July 28, 2021 — (Pictured): City native Nick Carlino, center, presents his oil painting of the old West Haven Town Hall to Mayor Nancy R. Rossi and her executive assistant, Louis P. Esposito Jr., at City Hall on Wednesday, July 28.
Carlino, now of Northford, donated the framed painting to West Haven for display on the wood-paneled wall on the first floor of City Hall.
The Victorian-era Town Hall, formerly at Main Street and Campbell Avenue, was erected in 1892 and dedicated in 1893, then the Orange borough of West Haven.
The Richardsonian Romanesque building, a style of Romanesque Revival architecture used for major civic buildings nationwide, was demolished in 1968 to build the current City Hall, which was constructed there in 1969 and dedicated in 1970.
