Hattie Riley, the Skinner family’s former housekeeper will take you back in time to the Industrial and Gilded Ages in Holyoke and share stories about the Skinner family, the mansion and the City of Holyoke. You will also learn how, not only the family, but the mansion were relocated to Holyoke following one of our nation’s greatest disasters of the time that wiped out 4 villages and killed 139 people in under an hour, and took place just minutes from the City of Holyoke. The preventable calamity was the result of the unregulated excesses of industrialization.
