Double storefront On the left is the building that had a double storefront and was home to the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the First Society of Spiritualists. At one time it was used as an Armory for the CT National Guard. It was also used as a social club. On the right is the Park Central. These two buildings as well as one on the right of the Park central were built around 1890 by M. Eugene Lincoln (not the Lincoln Square Lincoln) who was one of the city's most prolific builders. Besides these three, he put up at least ten other buildings in the city.
