Founded in 1910, the Holliston Historical Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping Holliston’s historical character intact.
As stated in its By-Laws, the mission of the Society is to “study, collect, and preserve historical records, traditions, and relics relating to the history of Holliston and its people; to promote the study of local conditions; to interest and unite the townspeople in a finer public spirit and a better social order, through the fuller understanding of the traditions and history of our town.”
The Society is governed by a Board of Directors and Executive Officers. Directors and Officers are nominated by committee and are elected at the annual Members meeting in June. The term of office for all Board members begins each year with the start of the new operating year on July 1st. The members of the Board of Directors manage use of the property, archives and collections, financial obligations and fund raising, as well as the planning and implementation of educational programs and social events.
The Society provides a unique opportunity for community fellowship due to the fact that it is one of the few organizations which includes in its membership people of all ages and all interests. New members are always welcome.
