Holyoke has a rich history and we invite you all to celebrate and follow a long for a year of events to commemorate 150 years. Before European settlement, the area that eventually became the City of Holyoke was home to Native Americans of the Algonquin and Iroquois tribes for hunting and fishing. Holyoke was first settled in 1745 and was officially incorporated as a town in 1850 and later as a city in 1873. Now, 150 years later it is a vibrant community and home to many.
