Carpenter and Fowler's storeThis is the Carpenter and Fowler storefront. It was located to the right of Marshall Tilden’s business block. Carpenter and Fowler later became Carpenter and Jordan and then Jordan Brothers Hardware. In 1906, the Jordan Brothers bought the Tilden Block next door and in 1916 the building was destroyed in one of Willimantic’s most spectacular fires.

Tilden's BlockThe Tilden's Block displays a sign that reads, “Stoves, crockery, glass, tin ware, furniture, carpets, oil cloths, dry and fancy goods, ladies and children's cloaks and suits.” The block was completely renovated, inside and out, in 1894. The facade was completely redone and a third floor was added. In 1906, Marshall Tilden sold the block to the Jordan Brothers. It became known as the Jordan Block and was destroyed by fire in 1916.
