The William Grant House (1895)

January 21st, 2008 Posted in Houses, Queen Anne, Windham


The 1895 William Grant House, at the intersection of Prospect and High Streets in Willimantic, was built in the Queen Anne style, featuring elements of the stick style. It is one of the many Victorian houses for which the city of Willimantic (a “census-designated place” in the town of Windham) is known. The house is currently owned by Eastern Connecticut State University and is used as an alumni house. It will be part of Willimantic’s 2008 Home Tour in June.

    I used to sled past this lovely ole house many winters ago with a girl who lived there named Mary Jane Loiselle. It is a wonderful looking and handsome structure and nice to see it restored.

    The Grant House was designed by a nationally significant architect named George F. Barber (1854-1915). Barber was a “pattern book” or “mail-order” architect who practiced out of Knoxville Tennessee between 1888 and roughly 1913. Barber literally had thousands of examples of his published designs built throughout North America. This home is one of several Barber design examples, built in Willimantic.
