Historic church slated to be razed

Belmont’s oldest church was slated for demolition after ­being sold early this month to a developer who received permission from the town to ­demolish it.

Developer Edward Hovsepian closed a deal to buy the former First Congregational Church on Trapelo Road in ­Waverly Square for $1.3 million on Jan. 7, according to John Veneziano, owner of ­Andrew Realty Services, which handled the sale. Hovsepian was issued a demolition permit on Dec. 12.
