Main Street, Willimantic, U.S.A.
If you missed the Longtimers Backyard Block Party in September (or even if you were there and want to see it again, indoors), the Mill Museum has recreated Willimantic’s Main Street in 1963, fifty years ago.
Drop by the Museum, see the street-scape. It won’t be up long!
