February 18, 2013

Debbie and Pete Lincoln are lifelong residents of Massachusetts, graduates of
Tufts University,and retired High School teachers from Lunenburg. On a whim
in 2007, they decided to visit each of the 351 cities and towns in the state.  



The whim evolved into a project to photograph, study, and compile information
about each. From this mountain of material, they have developed an informative,
entertaining, interactive, illustrated program entitled From Purgatory to Podunk.

Filled with anecdotes, little-known history, hidden locales, as well as their own mishaps, the Lincolns present this free two-hour presentation to groups anywhere in the state.

They were recently featured on the Callie Crossley show on WGBH radio.

The Lincolns will be speaking at the Holliston Historical Society on Sunday, March 3, 2013, at 2:00 PM. The public is cordially invited.

"They were recently featured on the Callie Crossley show on WGBH radio." They've been saying that for years now. I don't think that falls under "recent" anymore.

I am looking forward to this program; it sounds fun and interesting! Also, Historical Society members will be providing refreshments after the program. I hope you will join us.

Squatting on Miller Hill: Part 1

by Shirley White Nelson

[HR] published this article by former resident and author Shirley Nelson two years ago. (Miller Hill today, with the entrance to the Old Miller Road at the corner of Highland and Prospect.) For five years, from the summer of 1934 to the fall of ‘39, my family lived in the woods of Holliston. We lived primitively in an abandoned shack, 19th century style, without electricity, telephone or running water, in a space barely comfortable for two people, let alone six.
