Marble Hall and Hotel

The Second Congregational Church was the original structure at this location.

The Marble Hall and Hotel was at 198-210 High Street. It was build in 1885. It housed the WT Grant Department Store and when the Marble burned to the ground, Grant rebuilt there.

This is the Grant 1915 advertisement in the Holyoke city directory.

It also housed many professionals – lawyers, jewelers, relators, clothiers, milliners, barbers. The Springfield Republican had an office here.
