EverWonder Museum seeks to expand at Fairfield Hills Campus

The Town of Newtown will take more time to decide on competing applications for a vacant building on the Fairfield Hills campus.  EverWonder Children’s Museum of Newtown submitted a letter of intent for Newtown Hall.  They asked for 18 months to fundraise.  1st Financial Bank USA submitted a letter of intent a month later, offering to purchase it outright, which would bring taxes in to town.  The Newtown Bee reports that the bank proposed using the building for as corporate headquarters for Premier Financial Services, a subsidiary located in Woodbury.  Following social media posts by EverWonder, 1st Financial Bank withdrew from considering, giving EverWonder an opportunity to see if they can collect the needed funding.  The nonprofit has time now to submit a new letter of intent with a final offer for consideration.
