I passed through Holliston on my way into Wellesley from Whitinsville. It was cold.
This part of Massachusetts along the Blackstone Canal (1828) was prosperous in the mid-19th Century. Most of the of towns I drove through on the way home were centered around a long defunct textile mill, a white steepled church or two, and a monument to the Union dead. Holliston was out of the river valley and had no mill.
