Dr. Mason's HospitalThis picture is of Dr. Mason's Hospital at Fairview Avenue in 1920. It was built in 1880 as a home by William Barrows, the president of the Willimantic Linen Company. The rambling mansion was purchased circa 1908 by Dr. Louis Irving Mason (1865-1930), and in 1911 he built the extension on the rear. In 1939 it became the home of the Spector family, and also the site of summer theatre, thus laying the roots of the Windham Theatre Guild. The magnificent building was demolished in 1979.

Interior of the First National Bank.This photo shows the interior of the First National Bank on Main St. The bank “crashed” in 1895 after being audited and found $125,00 short. This was due to forgeries committed by the bank’s Cashier, Oliver Risley. After his suspicious death, the estate sold his magnificent home to then Mayor George Harrington. In 1903, the Maple Avenue property was bought by the Rev. Arthur de Bruycker and became St. Mary’s Convent. June 20, 2013 Pic of the Week
