Mill City is a cluster of buildings at the Old Southworth Mill (by the river, between West Springfield and Agawam. For first time visitors it can be a little tricky to get to initially. There are two ways to get to HCAC. From the North, going through West Springfield or from Southwest boing through Agawam.

See Google map below for general directions.



  • PARKING: DO NOT PARK/BLOCK THE LOADING DOCK. Students may briefly park near loading dock (please use hazards) to unload/load furniture pieces. All students must park past the loading dock entrance, down the hill, behind the building. The parking lot is well lit at night.

  • When traveling from the North via West Springfield side you will need to cross the railroad tracks to enter the Mill City complex. Train traffic is intermittent and occasionally a train may be moving slowly or stopped on the tracks. If you get stuck for too long go around the Agawam way. Please be patient and exercise caution navigating the train tracks.

  • The Big E (West Springfield) takes place annually in September, leading to more congested traffic, especially if traveling via Agawam. Please plan accordingly and allow more travel time when coming to class.

Please contact should you need additional assistance.
