Union StationThe Union Station, Willimantic, pictured in 1910. Willimantic was also widely known as the central rail hub of New England. All trains passed through here! During the 1890s, Willimantic became the only stop on the famed New England Air Line express between New York City and Boston -- a journey undertaken in just over four hours. Rudyard Kipling mentioned Willimantic in a poem. He often passed through the city en route from New York to Boston. This poem has been set to music by Connecticut's State Troubador, Sally Rogers on her CD, "Songs of the Heritage Corridor."

Chicken Coops on Quarry StreetThis picture takes us back to a time when there were scores of poultry farms and folks who had their own chicken coops in the Windham area. The chicken coops shown in this photo were on Quarry St. Several people contacted us to say they were near Mansfield Avenue and were torn down when the doctors’ offices were built.
