On the corner of West Main and Cedar Streets in New Britain is a large Shingle style house, built around 1900 by Charles W. Lines, who ran a grist mill. Lines later moved to Newington and the house was purchased by John M. Curtin, partner in a furniture dealer and undertakers company. The house was the Curtin Funeral Home until the late 1960s and today is used as office space.

    The Curtin Funeral Home was owned by my ancestor, John M. Curtin. Thanks for the photo, I cam across it while researching his wife’s family.
