Bill Memorial Library

In 1890, Frederic Bill, a local businessman and philanthropist, founded and built the Bill Memorial Library and gave it to the people of Groton. It housed 1750 volumes as well as a fine art and natural history museum. The building was built by architect Stephen Earle of Worcester, Massachusetts in the Richardsonian Romanesque style. It has undergone 2 expansions, one in 1907 adding on a room to house museum artifacts, and another in 1994 adding space for the children’s room and staff area.

Today, the Bill Memorial Library is a full-service public library. Its museum artifacts, including Colonel Ledyard’s sword and a mummy’s hand, are featured regularly in the museum case in the front hall.
