Since I’ve written two fairly long and geeky posts this week, I’m going to give you a break today.
Several people asked me if Holyoke, Massachusetts is the home of Mount. Holyoke College. It’s not, the college is in South Hadley, MA, but it’s close. It’s also close to Mt. Holyoke, which is in Hadley, MA and in the Holyoke range of mountains – hey, on the east coast, we consider 900′ (274m) to be high enough to call it a mountain. I drove to the summit of Mt. Holyoke to see if I could get an aerial view of the Holyoke Canal system. You’ll see more about that trip later, but on my way home, I drove past Mount Holyoke College. The college is operating remotely for the fall semester, so I had unfettered access to many doors.
Mount Holyoke College is considered, by folks who consider such things, to be one of the most beautiful campuses In the United States. I don’t know much about the school, and I only took a brief walk around the campus. Based on my observations during that walk, I can’t argue with that assessment. I can’t give you the history of these buildings, but I can share the photos. I hope you enjoy today’s gallery.
