Taking the Train to Holyoke, Then and Now: Two speakers at the Holyoke Public Library.
 
The Holyoke History Room presents two speakers on the past and future of rail service to Holyoke.  First, Nancy Howard will share her research into the origins of one of Holyoke’s architectural gems: the H.H. Richardson passenger rail station, built in 1885 at Bowers and Lyman Street.  Then Marcos Marrero, Holyoke’s Director of Planning and Economic Development, will provide the latest news on the much-anticipated return of passenger rail to Holyoke. Mr. Marrero will describe how city planners envision the former Depot Square area and Holyoke’s place on the Knowledge Corridor.  Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Holyoke Public Library. 
Free and open to the public.  Holyoke Public Library Community Room.
