A Timeline of Willimantic, CT

View Fullscreen

This timeline was created by Eastern students in the Fall 2020 class HIS388: Digital Windham, co-taught by Drs. Kirchmann and Ostwald. Over the course of the semester, students created a timeline of events judged important to the history of the town. Allen Horn (HIS '21) edited those events, added location data, and created this digital timeline.

To explore the timeline, click on symbols on the map, or events in the timeline, to learn more about that event. All of these events (and more) can  be viewed in the Items section of this website.
