Holyoke Area Tours and Presentations for 2023

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.

From November 16 2023 to January 16 2024, people that live and own a home in Holyoke that is 100 years old or more as of 2024 can ask to enter their house into a pool. In November of 2024, I will give a 3rd annual presentation on a House in Holyoke through Time. The event will take place at the Holyoke Public Library. The house that I present will be one from the pool of entrants. Only long past owners will be part of the actual presentation and there will be no mention of the present. Email your address and a paragraph about why your house should be selected. Important categories under which your home might be selected are architecture and history.

Thanks for your attendance. See you in 2024!
