Walden's BlockThe Walden Block appears to be the block from 770-776 Main St. The Pic of the Week shows the occupants to be Flint's Drugstore, the Post Office and Stationery/Book Store. In 1890 there were 2 booksellers in Willimantic. One was Charles Utley (at the corner of Main and Church). The other was Sweeney and Dunn in the building pictured this week. In 1890, the address was 170 Main. Sweeney and Dunn advertised their business as the "Willimantic News Depot". They also had a business at 119 Main St. which was called the Brainard House Block. In later years, it looks like the building's right side front was remodeled and a second story added. By 1900, the stationery store was Wm.J. Sweeney and, by the 1950s, Wm J. Sweeney and Son.
