St. Nicholas museum plan would cost $10 million

By Matthew Santoni

“At the foot of Troy Hill, a 108-year-old, ethnically Croatian Catholic church has sat abandoned for five years, its sagging stained-glass windows rattled by traffic rumbling past on Route 28 a few feet away.

But after St. Nicholas Church skirted demolition several times, a study released Friday showed it could see life again as a national immigration museum. It might attract 25,000 visitors a year after $10 million worth of renovations and expansion, said Mark Fatla, executive director of Northside Leadership Conference, which is managing the preservation effort.”
