Mission Statement

The Holyoke Restoration Guild is an association of skilled professionals and concerned and interested citizens focused on the restoration and preservation of historic buildings in Holyoke, Massachusetts. We work under the guidelines of the Massachusetts Historical Commission,  Holyoke Historical Commission and other related institutions.

Our members have a strong passion for preserving Holyoke’s cultural heritage.  They understand the need to train new experts who will continue to preserve our cultural treasures for the upcoming generations.

We seek solutions that balance the old and the modern in complimentary ways and preserve a healthy environment. We work and share our experience with volunteers, students and apprentices by educating and mentoring them through hands-on work programs, internships, lectures and publications.
