1890 Main Street, WillimanticThis picture of Main Street, Willimantic was taken in 1890 and shows the towering Loomer Opera House in the center of the picture, and the old Brainerd Hotel on the corner of Church Street. Built in 1850, this was Willimantic's first hotel, built to take advantage of the increased visitation to the town provided by the arrival of the New London Northern Railroad in 1849. It was demolished in 1892 and replaced by the Murray Block.

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.
