Addition to Pollack Mill

 This was tthe addition to the Pollack Mill (also known as the Conantville Mill). The older section of the mill later became home to the famous Shaboo nightclub.

"That picture brought great memories for me. The picture is the old trolley waiting area that was located in "The Ridges" area of Mansfield on the corner of Route 32 and Old Kent Road. The dead end street in the background is Old Kent Road. In 1945 I graduated from the three room Ridges School that was located at the very end of Old Kent Road. The trolley, that had run from Coventry Lake to Norwich, had long disappeared, but all the kids in that area would gather at the waiting area for the school bus to Windham High School.

In 1917, the CT legislature merged it with “The Connecticut Training School for the Feeble Minded” which, at the time, was located in Lakeville. With the merger and move came the new name, Mansfield State Training School and Hospital

John Ferreri said, "This looks a lot like Rt 195 in Storrs. Horsebarn Hill in particular. The view is to the south, toward Willimantic but taken west of the campus. Today, the "towers" dorms would be on your right. "
