Thats right> My grandmother lived on George St. I rememeber the guardrails used to go up and down this street - it must have been the steepest street in Worcester. Some nutty kids in the 60's used to try to ride a bicycle down this street and out into Main street - only heard of 1 kid making it all the way without getting hurt.

If you think George street was steep; try Downy Street and Ripley Street.

Diamond Street may be the steepest in Worcester.

George St is definitely the steepest in Worcester. Ripley St isn't steep at all - I think you're thinking of Hammond St, one over from Ripley. Don't know where Downy St is. I lived on a steep hill (Wayne St) and used to have regular arguments with my friends at the Boys Club (Ionic Ave, where I spent most of my time in the 1950s) on what was the steepest street in Worcester. After I got my drivers license in 1957 we made a list of candidates and then drove them all together. We tried Wayne St, George St, Diamond St, Hammond St, Davis St, Fowler St (now Airport Drive), Cliff St, Belmont St, Green Hill Pky, and we all agreed George St was steepest. Davis St was second. Maybe there's a steeper one somewhere, but we never found it.

The Thule Building was built around 1907 so that several of the city's Swedish organizations would have adequate winter quarters. During this period, many had summer quarters on the shores of Lake Quinsigamond, such as Svea Gille and the Englebreckt Club. Over time, many other Swedish groups would rent out the floors for meetings or events.
