Happy St. Patrick's Day! In 1848, construction began on a dam and canal system in Hadley Falls to provide water power to mills and factories producing everything from paper and textiles to steam boilers, cutlery and wire. Irish immigrants provided the labor and the developing industrial center became the town we now know as Holyoke. โ˜˜๏ธ

So this is a replica of different buildings that exist or used to exist in NH and MA and not actual village?
Someone loves his new friend Ezekiel..
I captured this Beautiful moment today at Storrowton Village Yuletide...not sure who this little boy is, he drew a picture of what he wanted for Santa. Hoping maybe his mom and dad will see this or others may just enjoy the pure beauty.
Thanks for putting on a wonderful event! Our little one loved meeting Santa.
I can't find this on the website, but what are the hours? How much is it to get in? What days are you open? Is the tavern open daily or is it reservation only or just a rental hall?
