This Week in the City, Mayor Dean Esposito is joined by Peter Siecienski, Chairman of the Richter Park Authority, to discuss the Richter House renovations.
The Richter House is over 100 years old and was given to the City of Danbury by the Richter Family in 1968. The Richter House is home to the Richter Arts Association which hosts lawn arts festivals, lectures, ethnic performances, classical and popular musical presentations, and art shows throughout the year. Musicals at Richter, the longest running outdoor musical theater program in the state of Connecticut, also uses the Richter House for their summer performances.
The Richter House renovations include structurally preserving the house, creating a more accessible venue for all, and building a new concession stand with ADA accessible bathrooms on the outside of the building.
The historic Richter House has long been a pillar of our community, and with these improvements, it will be able to be utilized for our arts community for generations to come.
