Pioneer Valley History Network celebrates the artisans, craftspeople, and manufacturers that produced goods in our area.  From cottage industries to precision manufacturing, from the arts and crafts movement to the Armory, the Pioneer Valley has led the way in innovation.  Once again, PVHN welcomes contributions from all over the Valley on different aspects of our locally-made history.  We encourage historical societies and museums to develop an exhibit or display featuring something made in your town.

  1. To Whom It May Concern: Is Williamsburg doing anything to recognize
    the 140th anniversary of the Mill River flood?

    1. I’m sure there will be something in Williamsburgh, too, but Wistariahurst Museum in Holyoke has this to offer:
      May 31, 2014 — The Skinnerville Tour
      Wistariahurst Museum, 238 Cabot St., Holyoke, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m

      A bus tour to Williamsburg will follow the course of the disaster that brought William Skinner to Holyoke one hundred forty years after the 1874 Mill River Dam collapse. See what remains of the village that bore Skinner’s name. Reservations necessary. Admission $45 general / $40 members.
