About HolyokeOn the Connecticut River, the Pioneer Valley city of Holyoke was the first planned industrial center in the country. Volleyball, first known as mintonette, was invented in 1895 by W.G. Morgan, a physical education instructor at the local YMCA. The Volleyball Hall of Fame, 444 Dwight St., features a model half-court and interactive exhibits. In March visitors can enjoy the Holyoke St. Patrick's Day Parade, one of the largest in the country.
