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.
