The old Saint Mary SchoolThis photo was taken from the parish's 1993 family photo album. The part of the building on the far right would have been closest to Valley Street. The Rectory roof is partly visible in the picture's lower left hand corner.

Adams and Company Meat MarketPic of the Week - May 20, 2011
In this pic, we'll start with the building at the very left of the picture. That is 931 Main St. and was once known as "the Gelinas Block" and then "the Mazzola Block". The middle building (with the Eagle Ale sign) is the saloon of Arthur McQuillan. McQuillans was a popular spot. Notice that the sign actually spells his name wrong. While it was "McQuillan in newspaper ads and the city directory, the sign says "McQuillian" - with an extra "i". Maybe it was painted by a patron who had one too many. The building on the right of McQuillan's (the two story house with a business on the street level) was 921-927 Main St. with "S. Adams and Co. Meat Market" at 921. Today it is the site of the Willimantic Public Library. Determining street numbers of past buildings is not always an exact science when applying them to today's buildings. The Library today is listed at 905 Main. Many of the buildings in earlier years consisted of 2 or more addresses depending upon how many floors a building had. But we'll happily accept any corrections

Harris Jewelry Factory - North WindhamPic of the Week - July 6, 2012 The Harris Jewelry factory was located between the Cape cod type house (621 N.Windham Rd.) and the 2 car garage just a bit down the Rd. owned by Ken Phillips. The stairs to the factory are still visible. Directly behind it was another large brick factory owned by Lester Hartson where wooden spools for American thread were manufactured. Ken Phillips had the building removed sometime around 1987. Back in the 185os a man named Lincoln had a general store and post office in the general location.
