DMP & HIB Promoting Circa Signs to Enhance Historical Preservation

by Bobby Blair
February 1, 2018

Call it simple historical pride or local bragging rights "my house is older than your house". The Downtown Marigold Project (DMP)and Holliston in Bloom (HIB) are combining efforts to offer local residents a way to publicly date their homes. The project is available for homes built prior to the Great Depression (1931). Holliston has 655 such houses according to Katherine Peirce who supplied data from the local assessors office. The endeavor will be rolled out in a two part series, the local historical districts and downtown residences receiving priority in 2018. Holliston's 300th Anniversary is only 6 years away and this year Holliston in Bloom will vie for the Outstanding Achievement Award of Historic Preservation.

The circa plaques are black on white and measure 12x16". The cost of the signs are $40. Offer letters for this portion of the project will be mailed during the week of  January 30th and residents have a deadline of March 31st to order signs. Delivery is expected within 4-6 weeks after the deadline. Homeowners are responsible for the placement and hanging of the signs.
