Beauty, history, and purpose collide at the Historic Day Nursery, an architectural gem located in the heart of Downtown and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Built in 1922 by Alice Bemis Taylor with the explicit purpose of providing education and care for children, it is the oldest location of Early Connections Learning Centers. The building’s beautiful Tudor Revival design is iconic, and the interior features whimsical details meaning to inspire and nurture children, including a mural that wraps the ceiling painted by Allen Tupper True.
