Long about 1850 the Universalist Church on Essex Street was built, and its congregation prospered for a century. Then, in 1950 they added a handsome brick addition -- yet their numbers dwindled until the building was sold, and the parishioners moved to the Unitarian Church, four blocks away. Last year the building was sold again, this time to be converted to living space -- 15 attractive apartments. It now becomes part of a city-wide phenomenon as condominiums and apartment buildings sprout up wherever there is a lot. See our lead story below.
