Gallaudet Block

The Gallaudet Block is a very old building by Holyoke’s standards. It was built in 1847 when this was still West Springfield. It is at the 95-97 High Street block. Look at the brickwork as you go up the building. It was once three stories in height but now is four.

In the late 1860s Michael Finn the brickmaker took over and also started to sell produce.
