Timothy D. Flynn, shopkeeper
1880s - Timothy D. Flynn General Store - 398 Main Street
In the town report of 1905 an ad was published by Timothy D. Flynn saying, “Alteration Sale. I am going to enlarge my general store on Salmon Street...” According to a descendant who later lived in the building, the Flynn grocery was here. The building appeared as a grocery store on the map of 1901, but by 1927 the property had been converted to apartments. Many were homes for French Canadian families arriving to work in local factories.
