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.

Willimantic Lumber and CoalOn September 19, 1940, a fire destroyed Willimantic Lumber and Coal. The first firefighters on the scene found flames shooting more than 100 feet in the air. Thousands gathered to watch the fireman as they doused the flames. The intense heat damaged several surrounding buildings and blistered structures on the opposite side of Church Street.

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
