Facts

  • The Mohican was built by New York publishing magnate Frank Munsey to house his presses, hoping to avoid labor problems and high production costs by moving out of the city.
  • After this move proved unsuccessful, Munsey turned the building into a hotel with shops in 1898, then into a department store around 1900.
  • The department store was also a failure and the Mohican was turned into a hotel once again, this time successfully.
  • For many years it was the only hotel in downtown New London and was considered one of the finest hotels in Connecticut.
  • It was converted into housing for senior and disabled citizens in the 1980's.
  • Originally eight stories tall, the top three stories are later additions.
