Holyoke Tours 2023 and beyond

2023 Holyoke Massachusetts area guided tours and presentations — FREE and OPEN to the public. Keep checking back since information will change. Presented by Robert Comeau.

The overall theme of the 2023 tours will be the sesquicentennial of Holyoke as a city.

Sign up at Eventbrite for most of these tours. The Holyoke Preservation Trust is the host for most of the events.

If you have a group that wants a tour of any site that I have done in the past or present, then see the RATES page.  For non-profits, tours are low cost but you need to provide the bus unless it is walking.  For other groups, tour leader will be paid and transportation is needed unless it is walking.  I can change the trip to suit the group.  There are many possible stops to take on the tour.
