Holyoke History and Preservation News and Activities

We welcome Olivia Mausel and Robert Comeau, in a fascinating conversation about the preservation and history of Holyoke, as they share updates, and good news about the restoration project of the Stained Glass Windows at City Hall.

We also talked about the historical clock at City Hall’s tower, including the details of a tour scheduled for October 19, 2019 at 10:00 AM, followed by a special tour with David Cotton, who was in charge of its restoration, that same day at 12:00PM.
