Waterbury Christian Icon To Shine again at Holy Land U.S.A.

The shining cross upon Pine Hill is returning. Waterbury Mayor Neil M. O’Leary, along with a business partner, purchased the land of the religious theme park and have promised to restore the original christian icon of Holy Land U.S.A. to its past glory. Their effort can be followed on their website here; http://www.holylandwaterbury.com  Conceived in the 1950’s by a Waterbury attorney, the goal was to “replicate the Bethlehem and Jerusalem of the Biblical era.” To find out more about the most recent land purchase, read this story by the Courant’s Bernard Davidow, about the purchase and plans
