"There are two things about a historic building: its use and its beauty. Its use is a matter for its owner, but its beauty belongs to everybody. So an owner goes beyond his rights in knocking it down." - Victor Hugo - author of The Hunchback of Notre Dame

"[Notre Dame is] architecturally the most notable building in downtown Worcester." - Telegram & Gazette, 8/27/17

“A city that disrespects its past and tramples on its past, it has no soul.” - City Councilor Konnie Lukes, 8/27/17

“There isn’t a person in the city of Worcester who wants to see Notre Dame come down—not one person.”- City Manager Ed Augustus, 4/24/18

“If there were another vocation for the building, given the fact that times have changed - if there were a way to save the structure in some kind of worthy way that would serve the community as a museum or a library or a monument to Worcester heritage, that at least would be a compromise.” - Rev. Steven M. LaBaire, pastor of Holy Family Parish at St. Joseph’s Church  (Telegram & Gazette article, 8/1/17)

“Americans care about their past; but for short term gain, they ignore it and tear down everything that matters. Maybe ... this is the moment to take a stand, to reverse the tide, so that we won’t all end up in a uniform world of steel and glass boxes.” -  JacquelineBouvier Kennedy Onassis, former First Lady, editor, and New York City historic preservationist

“Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children?” - Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis
