West Hartford History: When Did This Store Open?

Test your knowledge of West Hartford history with this photo from the archives of the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society.

West Hartford History: When Did This Store Open?

Last week we asked when Bishops Corner was developed. 

“Bishops Corner was always a busy intersection because of the roads running through it,” Sheila Dailey of the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society writes. “The real development began in 1953 with the opening of the Lord & Taylor department store. This store anchored the first of the four strip plazas on each corner of the intersection.”

Congrats to amystery726 for the correct answer, with honorable mention to acope and Ed Dombroskas for noting the location that formerly housed Lord & Taylor.

So what about this week? When did this store open?

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.

The image has been provided by the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society.
