EVANSVILLE – (WEHT) The location where the old Holy Trinity Church once stood in downtown Evansville is now a dirt lot.
Crews demolished the decades-old church at Northwest Third and Court streets to make way for an underground water retention facility. It will redirect 40 million gallons of stormwater. Officials expect that project to be finished by the end of 2021.
Before the demolition was complete, a time capsule was found in a cornerstone during at the beginning of October. The time capsule contained newspaper clippings, he Diocese of Evansville’s 1956 year book, a summary of Holy Trinity’s history, and the Holy Trinity prayer.
