Windham Center Green, 1911It all began here in the 1690s. This is Windham Center Green, pictured in 1911. The building visible at the far side of the green was built in 1839 for the Windham Bank. The organization relocated to the growing borough of Willimantic in 1872, and since then the building has been the home of the Windham Free Library. Also located on the green is a Sheriff's lock-up from the early 18th century -- along with some magnificent houses built before the Revolutionary War. This charming village also served as the summer home of Julian Alden Weir, the famed American impressionist artist.

Pic of the Week - December 31, 2015Since the early 1950s, the Fire Department's Bank Street Headquarters was heavily decorated for the Christmas and New Year's Holidays. Firefighters who put the decorations up had memories of the preparations. One said that one of the difficulties of putting up the decorations was that the department's "cherry picker" truck would sometimes have to be moved quickly if other apparatus was called out for an emergency.
