Built as a “Community House” by Connecticut Power in 1920 – and the first commercial building on the historic Williams estate – this two-story 1,900 square-feet colonial stone cottage on the doorstep of the Garde theater entrance features a beautifully appointed interior, a floor to ceiling gas-fired fireplace, seven rooms, central air and parking for seven.

The three-story Mercer Building, with an interior corridor that connects its upper floors to the 4-story Garde office building, houses the Garde administration at 309 State Street (second floor), classroom space for the ISAAC School,  in storefronts at 311 State Street and 305 State Street at the corner of State and Meridian.  There is substantial upper floor and ground floor space that could be made available for long-term  development for residential, cultural or allied commercial uses.

The one-story Meridian Building has two or three 900 square-foot storefronts available for retail, office and cultural complementary uses.
