CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH
Located near the Town Park, the Congregational Church is the tallest timber framed steeple in New England. It is 185',53/4" tall from the first floor to the tip of the weather vane on top.
   
MAIN STREET, SHOWING ENGINE HOUSE
A view of the Main Street area looking north showing the Central Fire Station, which was designed by Henry S. Moul and built by Lee contractor Charles Vaninetti in 1911. This building was built of Lee marble from the White Marble and Terrazzo Company of Lee.
   
MAIN STREET, LOOKING SOUTH
A view of Main Street looking south, was taken from the area of the
Lee Library. The green building on the right hand side of the print was the Lee Post Office. Note the height of the Central Block on the right. The block was partially destroyed by fire and never restored to its original height. The ornate roof lines on the left hand side of the print has also changed over the years.
   
MAIN STREET
A view from the upper Main Street, looking south from the area known as "Norton's Corner." Notice the marble used for the walls along the street. It all came from the quarries of Lee.
   
NORTH END FROM PROSPECT STREET
A view from the Prospect Street area of Lee shows the old iron bridge that spanned the Housatonic River. The print shows some of the many paper mills in the Center Street area that has employed many generations of Lee residents.
   
GREENOCK COUNTRY CLUB
A view of the clubhouse from West Park Street of this nine hole semi-private golf course with rolling terrain and many trees. It was founded in 1895 and has been listed in USGA as one of the first one hundred golf clubs established in the United States. It was designed by Donald Ross.

Memorial Hall was dedicated with opening ceremonies on May 30, 1874, with and address by Rev. Dr. Gale. It was built as a memorial to the "soldiers from this twon who had sacraficed their lives in the late struggle for the integrity of the Union." Marble tablets line the hall of this building witht the names of themen who gave their lives in this War Between the States. Memorial Hall also contained a large hall for public use, a Post Office, a Public Library, and offices for the exclusive use of the selectmen. The total cost of the building was $29,000.00. This included a $3,200.00 donation for the land on which Memorial Hall sits, the furniture and the marble tablets.
