Willimantic Linen Company's Number Three MillThis 1910 postcard depicts the Willimantic Linen Company's Number Three Mill. It was erected in 1845 by the Wellesville Company on the site of Willimantic's first cotton mill built by Perez Richmond in 1822. The Wellesville mill became part of the Linen Company in 1876. It was demolished in the late 1920s, and stood on the city's Recreation Park. This idyllic view depicts the mill raceway and provides a somewhat over romantic view of industrialization, in a style known as "the factory in the garden."

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."

Windham Inn - 1910 Bill Kotrba sent us this photo. He says, "It is a very unusual view picturing route 14 heading in an easterly direction. I have only seen 2 examples of this card in the past. Please note, the Windham Inn has a wrap around porch, and the grade in front of the post office is much higher than it is today. Between 1958 and 1962, our music professor, Elizabeth Fields from Willimantic State Teacher's College, lived in the third building on the left."
