The eight gargoyles that were removed from the Chestnut Street Church and discovered missing in 2014 were finally returned to Worcester in February 2017.  Preservation Worcester, tireless in its efforts to find them and bring them back to Worcester, is now seeking a more permanent venue where they can be enjoyed by our citizens until such time as they can be re-installed on the Church.
