Willimantic Traction Co. trolleyAda Kerachsky Albright says, "The trolley is heading south on the Old South Windham Road, crossing the intersection of Kick Hill Road and about to go up Babcock Hill Road. In the far background is Route 32 which runs parallel to the old South Windham Road. My family lived in what had been the old schoolhouse on Babcock Hill Road, and before the land across the road from our house was developed, there was a lane that had once been a trolley lane and went to the short road paralleling Route 32 that starts behind where the gas station is/was.

Baseball Game at Windham FieldHere we see a crowd of people attending a baseball game at Windham Field. Memorial Park was originally known as Windham Field, and served for many years as the home of the Willimantic Colts, the city's professional baseball team. The stadium was removed in 1917, and the field was landscaped to memorialize those from Willimantic who died during World War One. Pic of the Week October 10, 2013

Natchaug Silk Company MillThis is the North St. façade of the Natchaug Silk Company (in the 1950s, William Brand was located there). Col. J. Dwight Chaffee had the building erected in 1887 and by the time it was completed his business had grown so much that he also began taking over space in the adjoining Morrison Machine Company’s building on Valley St. One of the great innovations of this company was to allow purchasers to buy directly from the mill and so Natchaug Silk became a very early mail order business.
