New Donations to the Collection

on 6/26/2017

The Society was very pleased to have Mrs. Carolynn Henderson of Holliston donate the following pieces from her family for our collections:

A two-piece wedding dress, including a lace garter, worn by Carolynn's maternal grandmother at her wedding in 1906

A burgundy throw with velvet trim embroidered with flowers in 1900 by Carolynn's paternal grandmother

Part of a woman's lace collar which we estimate is from the late 1800s

We are so grateful to Carolynn for offering us these lovely items for the Society's collection. They will help us tell the story of life in Holliston over the centuries.
