The Happiness Machine
by Jay Ducharme
In 1988, Holyoke, Massachusetts, was a once thriving city coping with recession. Making it worse was the loss of Mountain Park, the city’s beloved amusement park. From these seemingly grim circumstances, a resident named John Hickey decided it was time to turn those circumstances around by saving the park’s vintage merry-go-round and placing it in the heart of the downtown area. Featuring dozens of color photographs, this is the inspiring story of that unprecedented effort which united a community and saved an important part of their history.
