You’re invited to join local historian and author Joanne Hulbert for a candle-light tour of the Central Burying Ground next to Town Hall (703 Washington Street) on Saturday afternoon, October 28 from 4:30 – 5:30 at dusk.

Cider and doughnuts will be served following the walking tour.  There is no charge for this program.

In case of inclement weather, the program will be cancelled.

Benjamin

He lieth in a grave in town,

His stone immersed beneath the ground,

A tree drapes dead across his plot,

Have we forgotten the battle he's fought?

 

Though Holliston was his abode,

He came from Dracut, not far down the road,

Joined General Butler's Company "C",

30th Regiment; a private you see.
