*The February 13th program: Along the ”Indifferent Road” with George Washington”
This presentation, sponsored by the Natick, Sherborn, and Holliston Historical Societies, and the Sherborn Library covers events which took place in November of 1789, as George Washington was returning to New York at the end of his post-inaugural visit to New England as the country’s first president.
Join us as we trace the president’s route through Natick, Sherborn, and Holliston and learn about where he traveled, what he did, and what landmarks stand today as a silent witness to his journey.
This presentation is free and open the public, but advance registration is required. For more information, please visit the Holliston Historical Society page: www.hollistonhistoricalsociety.org where you will find a link to the registration page
*Another program, sponsored by the Holliston Historical Society and the Holliston Library, will take place on February 20th, 2022 at 2:00 PM.
Meet The Author – Ted Reinstein
In honor of Black History Month, local author and Holliston resident, Ted Reinstein will talk about his latest book, Before Brooklyn: The Unsung Heroes Who Helped Break Baseball’s Color Barrier. The book chronicles the 60 years during which Black baseball players were banned from the major leagues. Their struggle to integrate our national pastime paved the way for Jackie Robinson, yet they remain anonymous.
Depending on the number of COVID-19 cases in town, this program may be in person, hybrid, or virtual. Watch for the Holliston Historical Society bulletins at www.hollistonhistorical.org or the library’s at www.hollistonlibrary.org for the latest info.
