Join us on Friday, October 21 at 7pm for the 19th annual Holliston Historical Society Oktoberfest celebration. Our 1815 barn is the perfect venue for this festive occasion. Members of the Society volunteer with the setup, cooking, serving, decorations and clean up. Come and meet them as well as your neighbors and friends.

We are welcoming back the Double Eagle Oktoberfest Band. This lively band has performed all over the East Coast and Canada and will get you laughing, singing and dancing a polka before the evening is done.

In addition to large, soft pretzels and your choice of beverage

The Holliston Historical Society LIbrary will be open for its normal hours  on Sunday Oct 9, 2016 from 2-4 pm.  It is open on the 2nd Sunday of the month from September to June.  The library is also open by appointment (contact the librarian).  The library is open to HHS members and non-members alike.  The library is located on the second floor of the Historical Society house (Col. Asa Whiting house).  It contains many valuable resources that are not available elsewhere.

January Potluck Evening Enjoyed By All

on 1/19/2016

Members and their guests enjoyed the annual Potluck dinner on the evening of January 16th. It began about 5:30pm  with appetizers, beverages and the much anticipated Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs' playoff game.  Dinner was delicious and enlightening with many recipes from the 1920s through the 1940s. There were chicken entrees, Swiss steak and noodles, macaroni and cheese, a bean and cheese loaf (popular in the 1940s when meat was very expensive), hot dogs and beans, Waldorf salad......just to name a few.......very satisfying!
