Willimantic Moose ClubThe Willimantic Moose Club, local 1440, was located in this fine house on the north side of Pleasant Street for many years. The house was built in 1848 for John Tracy, the Agent for the Windham Manufacturing Company's mills on Bridge Street. Tracy was a founder of the Willimantic Savings Institute in 1842. The building still stands just west of the Armoury. The Moose Club subsequently moved to Brook Street, and took over the old Polish Club, when that institution built a new club on Ives Street circa 1933.
