Ice Delivery in WillimanticThis photo was taken on the High St. side of the Town Hall. It shows the delivery wagon of the Ayer’s ice house. The two principal suppliers of ice in Willimantic were Eaton of Mansfield and Ayer, which was on Pleasant St. at the Lebanon line. Due to public outcry over the rising cost of ice, by 1913, Willimantic began a short-lived municipal ice business and harvested ice near the Pumping Station. May 9, 2013 Pic of the Week

Loomer Opera House The Loomer Block dominated Main St. for several decades. The Loomer Opera House was considered to be the finest theater between Hartford and Providence. It seated 1,200 people in lush surroundings. Many famous vaudeville acts played there, including Buffalo Bill Cody, Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel. Lumber magnate Silas Loomer built it in 1879. Movies were shown there in the 1920s, but it could not compete with the Capitol Cinema. The Opera House was demolished in 1940 and replaced by a new Woolworth's store.The block also housed several other businesses including a pharmacy and a pool hall.

Wagon team in front of Town Hall.Pic of the Week - June 30, 2011
The building pictured is just to the left of the Town Hall. During the '38 hurricane, the top floor was damaged and then later removed. Butch Ives wrote, " The boiler & wagon appears to be the same as one in my Postcard Collection. Postcard is identified as Boiler for Pollock Mills Renovation.". Paul Ashton wrote, "The building with the Hayden Real Estate advertisement is interesting. The current building is the same size but one story (fire, partial rebuild maybe?). I would assume Hayden St. is named after old Willard since the ad talks of building lots and his office was on Pleasant St.". Paul is correct - actually, Willard Hayden had three streets named after him - Willard Street, Hayden Street and Hayden's Row (now Vermont Drive).

George Nason's Lumberyard. Corner of Valley and Church StreetsPic of the Week - November 22, 2012. This is George Nason’s Lumberyard which burned on Feb. 13, 1894. At the time it burned, it was across the street from the original police headquarters and Town Hall. By 1895, the lot had been proposed as one of the possible sites for a new Town Hall. Eventually “the Chase lot” on the corner of High and Main was chosen. The Nason lumberyard later became Willimantic Lumber and Coal.
