Last week we showed a photo of the home on Vanderbilt Hill that silk manufacturer Ira Dimmock lived in. The elaborate mansion was built but never occupied by Cornelius Vanderbilt. The house was eventually torn down and a cul-de-sac of homes was built, now known as West Hill.
Congratulations to (who else?) Rick Liftig for nailing the answer.
So how about this week, West Hartford historians? Can you identify what building this is?
If you think you know the answer or have a special memory related to the photo, respond in the "Leave a comment" box below this article. We'll run the answer next Monday, along with a new historical photo.
