Thread City GarageThe Thread City Garage was located off Main St. in back of where the present day Nathan Hale Hotel stands. Parts of the brick walls are standing today and can be seen to the left of the present day firehouse. A spectacular fire in 1915 ruined that garage as well as the Natchaug Garage and the Johnson House Hotel. The Thread City Garage rebuilt and remained in business until sometime in the 1930s.

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.
