PVHN’s “Rollin’ On The River” — A Cruise on the Connecticut River
PVHN has just booked the “Lady Bea” out of Brunelle’s Marina in South Hadley for an excursion on the Connecticut River! This will be a 90-minute Educational Cruise for all ages and it is scheduled for Friday, July 12th at 5 p.m. There will be snack trays on board and a cash bar. The cost is only $20. The Lady Bea seats 49 people, so this will sell out. Click here for a River Cruise Registration Form. Get your payment in soon! We’ll see you on board!
NEW! THEME FOR 2013!
The CONNECTICUT RIVER & ITS TRIBUTARIES!
Join the Pioneer Valley History Network in celebrating the common thread that links our region — the Connecticut River & Its Tributaries. Every community in our three counties has a connection to the river or a tributary.
We see this website as a way to examine all aspects of the river’s history: transportation on the river, its recreational uses, its dams, its bridges, its ferries, its economic importance to our region, its agriculture, its environmental aspects, the geological history of the valley, the log drives, the shad runs, the ice industry — there’s something for everyone. Let’s not forget the 75th anniversary of the flooding of the Swift River, a Connecticut tributary, for the creation of the Quabbin Reservoir. To see the Connecticut River website, clink here.
Once again, PVHN welcomes contributions from all over the Valley on different aspects of the river’s history. You may send articles and/or photos to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

NEW! RESEARCH FINDING AIDS PROJECT!
About PVHN’s Finding Aids Project
Many of the Pioneer Valley’s museums and archives, both large and small, have printed “finding aids” for certain collections, or for their entire holdings. These finding aids, once a standard practice for museums and archives, are used by museum staff to locate specific items from those collections. For the researcher, they provide insight into the holdings of that museum or archives. Frequently, these finding aids are not digitized and are nowhere to be found on the world wide web.
This project will enable researchers and the general public to utilize archival resources of the Pioneer Valley that are currently languishing because finding aids for many important collections have not been made available on the Internet.
