4:00 PM - 6:00 PMThe Newton Brothers: Building Industrial Holyoke, 1862-1899



Location:  Online via Zoom
Contact:  Eileen Crosby
Description:  

Four sons of a lumber entrepreneur from Greenfield, Massachusetts, played an outsized role in making Holyoke the nation's Paper City after the Civil War. As mill builders, financiers, manufacturers, real estate men, and inventors, the Newtons were rarely far from the action in Holyoke's economic boom. This Zoom lecture with Will Melton draws on archival sources and materials in private collections to assemble the story of the Newton Brothers and assess their impact on Holyoke and on the region.  This is the second dive into history by retired South Hadley professional Will Melton, whose first appearance at the Holyoke Public Library introduced his book about his father’s experience serving on WWII Liberty Ships. Free, but pre-registration is required.
