About Holyoke MA - Collectibles
America's first intentional industrial community, Holyoke, MA, has a rich history. This history is evident on the variety of Holyoke artifacts and souvenirs available from the industrial heyday. Back in 1847, dams and canals populated the area along the Connecticut River. As the dams came about, more investors and worker housing followed. Today, some of the original complexes (now protected sites) are accessible to tourists. The nearby Mount Holyoke State Range State Park provides a beautiful backdrop for both professional and amateur photographers. The mountains reach up to 1,000 feet in some areas, and span 7 miles. Find antiques and memorabilia on eBay, where reputable sellers offer a great selection. Many items are original, but some reproduction photographs and items are for sale as well. The rich history of Holyoke fills out a collection, whether it's an industrial antiquity or a memorable photograph. A piece of history is waiting for you.
