Atwood Block storefrontwas of the storefront that, at the end of the building’s life, was occupied by Curran’s Pharmacy. However, the building itself had undergone several renovations over the decades. The actual building was put up in 1861 by A.E. Brooks and was originally a hotel and restaurant. The main occupant was “The European House” and it had access from Railroad St. The oldest photos of Willimantic show it as a 3-4 story building. The 1889 City Directory shows the Main St. storefront as housing “D.H. Henken – Merchant Tailor, Atwood Block”
