The Vino Elderkin house - built by Colonel Elderkin for his son.The photo shows Jerusalem Road as it joined the present day Route 203. The Colonel Elderkin house in on the photo’s right. It was built by Colonel Elderkin for his son Vino just after the Revolutionary War. The bricks were said to be imported from Holland and the nails were hand wrought. It was torn down in 1912. It had fallen into disrepair several years earlier and nothing was done to prevent further damage. The Colonel himself never lived there - his house was in the Windham center village.

Oliver Risley's ParlorThe room in last week’s photo belonged to Oliver Risley. He was the head cashier at the First National Bank. He was also an embezzler and forger. Shortly after his death, the bank collapsed due to his shady dealings. The Natchaug Silk Company and Morrison Machine came close to collapsing as well due to the forged paper. His room was located in the house at 80 Maple Avenue that was originally built in 1863 for Holland Silk Mill owner Goodrich Holland. After Risley’s death, the mansion was sold to Willimantic Mayor George Harrington. In 1903, it was sold to the Rev. Arthur deBruycker who transformed it into a convent. It is still owned by Saint Mary Parish.
