Mourning the CityOn May 31, 1983, the evening before Willimantic (as a city) ceased to exist, mourners held a wake and processed up Main St. The consolidation culminated a 30 year effort to unite city and town and ended Willimantic's 150 year history as a separate political entity.

Main St.Nothing defines a town more than its Main St. This album features photos taken through the years. This is one of the earliest photos we have seen. Note that the Main St. side of Lincoln Square has begun to be built up while the Union St. side is still raw land. The houses on Main St. will soon be replaced by brick buildings.

People Parade Back in the 80s, 3 artists created a painting of Main St. and the people who were often seen there, including many of the shopkeepers. It is hanging in the Town Hall lobby. Years ago, I took pictures of the mural, divided them up into 9 sections and put a number near each person, hoping to be able to identify as many as possible. I couldn't get as close as I wanted to the original picture because there was a big framed poster in front of it. But if there is enough interest, I'll go back and take more pics in a higher resolution.This is the 3rd of 9 pictures. Recognize anybody?
