Exploring the History of Holyoke

Experience an alternate way of viewing history at Wistariahurst and Amherst College’s  “Exploring the History of Holyoke” presentation. Discover the rich and captivating stories of Holyoke, Massachusetts as the Amherst College “Mining the History of Holyoke” students showcase their fascinating findings. Using text analytics and data mining, these talented students have delved deep into the Holyoke Public Library History Room and Wistariahurst Museum Archive, unearthing hidden insights from the 19th and 20th centuries. From a Parsons Paper Company payroll register to World War II letters, they have brought these artifacts to life in a fresh and engaging way. Join us and experience history in a new light, gaining a deeper understanding of the past with these gifted students as your guides.


Join us at the Wistariahurst Museum Music Room on May 9th from 3:00-4:00pm for a series of accessible presentations open to everyone in the community.
