My ancestors lived in Pittsfield from 1896 until sometime in the 1930s. Today their church, Notre Dame, is for sale. For $350,000 you can buy the building where my ancestors’ births, marriages, and deaths were celebrated.
It has been listed for over 6 months — so maybe you can get a deal. It is close to downtown and despite its obvious potential as a remade church, someone with vision could turn it into a great community or arts space too.
I have no idea why Notre Dame is being sold (though I have some guesses….) And I have no idea where the remaining Greenwood descendents (distant cousins I met through the internet) worship now, if they still do.
Everywhere I look, new mysteries are popping up in my family history. It is spring and I have many stories to pursue….
