The four businesses in the Hurley Block are the Hurley Grant Company, Martin's photographers, the Rex Restaurant and Rogers Pharmacy.

1934 Democratic outingThe speaking programs were long. At the outing in 1934, for example, attendees heard from Willimantic Attorney Arthur Kelley who introduced the program and 14 other speakers. Here, the speaker is Congressman Francis Thomas Maloney, a U.S. Representative from Connecticut from 1933 to 1935 and a U.S. Senator from Connecticut from 1935 to 1945. To Maloney’s right is Mayor James M. Hurley (Willimantic Mayor 1932-1935). To Hurley’s right is Pierre J. Laramee, ( Willimantic Mayor, State Representative and State Senator). To Laramee’s right , we think is Mrs. Minnie Flynn

Summer of 1968This photograph was taken in the summer of 1968, after the St. Valentine Day fire destroyed the Commercial Block, which had stood on the site since 1865. The building located on the eastern corner of Main and Church, the Turner block, was built in 1877 and served as a hotel for many years. It was demolished in the early 1970s, and the site is today the home of Liberty Bank. Note the Methodist Church, and the Murray Block, which would be the home of Hurleys until December, 2002.
