Rear View

This is a pic taken from the walking trail along the Humber River ravine showing the rear of the Old Mill. The Old Mill opened in 1914 on the site of an old grist mill and has had many additions over the years as you can see. It is now a hotel, spa and event venue specializing in weddings with its own on-site chapel and wedding garden for pictures. It is also know for the afternoon tea that has been served since its opening in 1914. These back rooms would have a lovely view of the ravine and river!

Don't think I've ever seen a building so tall done in the Tudor style.

It is interesting to see a Tudor building that high. We have lots of Tudor buildings in Connecticut, but most are no higher than three to five floors.

You asked what happened to the original West Hartford Center. It is still there and thriving. It has become a regional Mecca for restaurants and niche shops, so the town leaders and developers decided that it could be extended without hurting the original center.
