This is part of the Holyoke Heritage Trail so after visiting here get back onto the trail.

This district is 4 and a half blocks long starting in the south at a point half way between Essex and Appleton Streets to in the north at Lyman Street. The best way to tour the street is by walking on the eastern sidewalk and looking at the western edge buildings from Essex Street to Lyman Street. Then tour the other side of the street by walking on the western sidewalk and looking at the eastern edge buildings from Lyman Street to Essex Street. To do this park near the back of the Congregational Church.
