In celebration of Next Stop Holyoke we’re filling our grounds with pumpkins and other fall fun!
Community members young and old are working hard to creatively carve over 100 pumpkins for this special outdoor “exhibition.” Join us for the grand lighting where we’ll have refreshments, pony rides, games, and crafts. See the historic grounds of Wistariahurst lit up like you’ve never seen them before.

The Godfather of Volleyball Comes to Town
Monday, October 19, 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.
$7 admission or $5 for Museum members
Harold T. Friermood “Frier” was perhaps best known as the man who got volleyball into the Olympics, but he was also a man who succeeded by doing what he loved and sharing his expertise and skills with others. Join us as we hear a tale of a man who, at a young age, was given a gift that would go on to shape his whole life’s purpose. Presenter Libby Franck is “Frier’s” daughter and a gifted storyteller.
