This fine row of Main Street buildings was photographed in 1914. The Melony Block on the left was originally the Congregational Church, built in 1828. It was demolished in the 1930s. The Gem Cinema, on its right, was Willimantic's first custom built movie house. It was built in 1909. Next is the YMCA block, built in 1912. The commercial block at the right was built in 1890, and is still standing, Unfortunately, the two architectural gems in the centre are hidden by decorative concrete blocks, placed there in 1964.

Sussman Oil Company truck falls into an old cesspoolThe story we've heard is that one of Sussman Oil Company's trucks fell into an old cesspool. Does anyone have any idea where in Willimantic this may have happened? (photo courtesy of Stan)
