Barre Urban Renewal, Chruches and Civic Buildings
The urban renewal slideshow includes a photographs of familiar Barre buildings as they appeared in 1966 (See also "Businesses" section). These seemed to be positive aspects of Barre's downtown, although plans were afoot to change the storefronts to be more appealing. One off the aspects of the plan was to provide a large parking lot to serve the Roman Catholic and Presbyterian churches as well as the city audiotrium. See "Plans" section to see how the planners wanted to change the downtown.
