The Recovered History of Prospect Hill
Goodnow Park, the Pepper Box, and Lake Nonotuck
From the mid-1880s to World War I, Goodnow Park, Lake Nonotuck, and the Pepper Box were lively sites of Mount Holyoke College activities. Today these place-names have been all but forgotten. Drawing from the College's Archives and Special Collections, this exhibition highlights a rich collection of postcards, photographs, stereopticon views and glass negatives that offer an excursion into the years between 1879 and 1920.
