Holliston is a New England town in Middlesex County, United States in the Greater Boston area. The population was 13,547 at the 2010 census, in 2016, the population was 14,556, it is part of the Massachusetts region, located due west of Boston, known as the MetroWest. Holliston is the only town in Middlesex County that borders both Worcester counties. At the time of the earliest European settlements, where Holliston exists now was part of the territory of the Awassamog family of Natick, who held authority over land near Waushakum Pond at Framingham and land near Annamasset at Mendon. In 1701, a large tract of land that included the west half of Holliston, eastern Milford and parts of Hopkinton and Ashland was given to the local Nipmucs in a land exchange with Sherborn, their ownership of the tract was brief, as settlers purchased tracts of land there until all traces of Nipmuc presence disappeared. The Nipmuc village of Mucksquit, located on the shore of Wennakeening was near the site of the Morse family farm, today known as Lake Winthrop.
The Morses, Sheffields and Bullards and many others followed Pout Lane out to the new territory and settled along the path, thus forming a cluster of farms that would become Holliston. John Eliot and Daniel Gookin followed the path in search of converts to Christianity and encouraged the Nipmucs to gather into villages, which made their task of finding them easier. Though not as famous as the Bay Path or the Old Connecticut Path, Pout Lane played a major role in the settlement of Holliston and other points southwest of Boston. Holliston part of Sherborn, was first settled by Europeans in 1659 by Massachusetts Bay Puritans; the town of Holliston was incorporated on December 3, 1724, by virtue of approval by the General Court petition requesting that "the western part of Sherborn be a Town." The name was taken in honor of Thomas Hollis of a benefactor of Harvard College. The first town meeting was held at the house of Timothy Leland on December 23, 1724, "at which five selectmen and all other required officers were chosen."
The town has grown from a community of a few hundred residents setting aside ten pounds per year for public education to a community of over 13,000 with an annual budget of over $40 million including more than $23 million for a nationally recognized school system. In "Holliston" by Images of America and the Holliston Historical Society, it is written: An article in a local newspaper in 1894 heralded the charms of Holliston as the quintessential New England village, the story said, sprang into existence due to the talent of its people; this is so, for there was no great moment in history to mark the founding of this town. Holliston has become a reflection of the accomplishments of the inhabitants of this place for more than three hundred years, although the town had to admit to no magnitude of greatness to rival Boston, Lexington, or Concord, Holliston did define itself as a home to heroes of the commonplace; the feature story of 1894 said: "Many cities have sprung into existence because of their advantageous situations.
The prosperity of Holliston is due to the genius of its people. A visit to such places stirs the blood, quickens the pulse and produces an enthusiastic desire to have a share in the developing good times. Massachusetts may be Whittier's land, the region from Marblehead to Amesbury may be full of legendary and spectral armies, witchdom, Buddha knows what, but the imaginative and the poetical must submit to the rights of the commonplace; the commonplace is honeycombed with the uncommon heroisms of the patient, everyday existence that make up the life of such plucky towns as Holliston. These are the things. Average life is but a portfolio of views of struggles with the commonplaces of everyday existence"; the town was once the largest producer of shoes in the United States. Although many of the shoe factories have been lost by fires and other problems, the largest company, the Goodwill Shoe Company, still has remaining empty factories on Water Street, many of which are now used as artists' studios.
Competition from overseas factories is to blame for the loss of the industry. Holliston's Mudville neighborhood claims to be the location of the 1888 Ernest Lawrence Thayer poem, "Casey at the Bat", maintains an ongoing rivalry with Stockton, which makes the same claim regarding the poem's setting. On the north side of Route 16 heading into Milford sits a large rock, some 20 ft in length, 10 ft in width, 6 ft thick, weighing over 5 tons; the rock appears to be balanced precariously on an outcrop of granite ledge. On November 6, 1789, General George Washington led his entourage from Boston to New York via this route, he recalled in his diary the road in Holliston that would be honored with his name, "an indifferent road, diversified by good and bad land, cultivated and in woods, some high barren, others low and piney." Legend has it that, as they came across this "Balancing Rock," they took the opportunity to have some fun and tried their best to tip over the rock. It is said that the General himself, quite amused at the spectacle, added his muscle in an attempt to push the rock off its natural pedestal.
Their efforts — and those of many others over the years — were to no avail as Balancing Rock still stands today. The rock is on the property of the Balancing Rock development, a community for "active" adults over the age of
Winn Memorial Library
Winn Memorial Library / Woburn Public Library is a National Historic Landmark in Woburn, Massachusetts. Designed by architect H. H. Richardson, the Romanesque Revival building was a bequest of the Winn family, it houses the Woburn Public Library, an institution, established in 1856. The library is properly called the "Woburn Public Library." The Winn family generously paid to construct the building and provide an endowment for the library, but requested that it not be named for them. Richardson signed his plans "Winn Library," and it remains known in architectural circles as "Winn Memorial Library." The inscription in the entrance porch reads: "This building was erected in memory of Jonathan Bowers Winn from funds bequeathed by his son, for the use and improvement of the people of Woburn." It was built between 1876 and 1879, was the first in a series of libraries designed by Richardson. In it he established a characteristic, basilical plan for such buildings: an off-axis entrance marked by a staircase tower.
The building was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987 in recognition of its architectural significance. The library's main facade presents a long, two-story stack wing to the west, slit windows on the first story with a strip of clerestory windows separated by columns above, all below a peaked roof; the gable-ended crossing features a trio of arched double windows on the first story, a line of seven arched single windows above, an attached High Victorian tower. On the opposite side of the tower is the arch of the entrance porch; the easternmost section is an attached two-and-a-half-story octagonal wing. The building's polychromatic exterior is constructed of brownstone trimmed with lighter stone, sometimes laid in bands, set in alternating colors over the main arches and the entrance porch; this is all beneath a red tile roof trimmed with bronze cresting, with crocketed ribs on the roofs of the tower and museum. The interior features a reception room/picture gallery with the museum to the right and a trio of reading rooms to the left.
Beyond the reading rooms are the 2-story stacks, that feature a tall 6-arch arcade on each side, topped by a wooden barrel-vaulted ceiling. There are curved staircases at the four corners of the stacks, in addition to the main stair in the tower. A statue of native son and notable scientist Sir Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, stands on the main lawn before the library.

Middlesex County, Massachusetts
Middlesex County is a county in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in the United States. As of 2016, the estimated population was 1,589,774, making it the twenty-first most populous county in the United States, the most populous county in both Massachusetts and New England; as part of the 2010 national census, the Commonwealth's mean center of population for that year was geo-centered in Middlesex County, in the town of Natick at. Middlesex County is included in the Census Bureau’s Boston–Cambridge–Newton, MA–NH Metropolitan Statistical Area. On July 11, 1997, the Massachusetts legislature voted to abolish the executive government of Middlesex County due to the county's insolvency. Though Middlesex County continues to exist as a geographic boundary it is used as district jurisdictions within the court system and for other administrative purposes, such as an indicator for elections; the National Weather Service weather alerts continue issuances based upon Massachusetts's counties. The county was created by the Massachusetts General Court on May 10, 1643, when it was ordered that "the whole plantation within this jurisdiction be divided into four shires."
Middlesex contained Charlestown, Watertown, Concord, Medford and Reading. In 1649 the first Middlesex County Registry of Deeds was created in Cambridge. On April 19, 1775, Middlesex was site of the first armed conflict of the American Revolutionary War. In 1855, the Massachusetts State Legislature created a minor Registry of Deeds for the Northern District of Middlesex County in Lowell. In the late 19th century and early 20th century, Boston annexed several of its adjacent cities and towns including Charlestown and Brighton from Middlesex County, resulting in an enlargement and accretion toward Suffolk County. Beginning prior to dissolution of the executive county government, the county comprised two regions with separate county seats for administrative purposes: The Middlesex-North District with its county seat in Lowell under the Registry of Deeds consisted of the city of Lowell, its adjacent towns of Billerica, Chelmsford, Dunstable, Tyngsborough and Wilmington; the Middlesex-South District with the county seat in Cambridge consisted of the remaining 44 cities and towns of Middlesex County.
Since the start of the 21st century much of the current and former county offices have physically decentralized from the Cambridge seat, with the sole exceptions being the Registry of Deeds and the Middlesex Probate and Family Court, which both retain locations in Cambridge and Lowell. Since the first quarter of 2008, the Superior Courthouse has been seated in the city of Woburn; the Cambridge District Court. Of the fourteen counties of Massachusetts, Middlesex is one of eight which have had no county government or county commissioners since July 1, 1998, when county functions were assumed by state agencies at local option following a change in state law. Prior to its dissolution, the executive branch consisted of three County Commissioners elected at-large to staggered four-year terms. There was a County Treasurer elected to a six-year term; the county derived its revenue from document filing fees at the Registries of Deeds and from a Deeds Excise Tax. Budgets as proposed by the County Commissioners were approved by a County Advisory Board that consisted of a single representative of each of the 54 cities and towns in Middlesex County.
The votes of the individual members of the Advisory Board were weighted based on the overall valuation of property in their respective communities. The County Sheriff and two Registers of Deeds are each elected to serve six-year terms. Besides the employees of the Sheriff's Office and the two Registries of Deeds, the county had a Maintenance Department, a Security Department, some administrative staff in the Treasurer's and Commissioners' Offices, the employees of the hospital; the country government owned and operated the Superior Courthouse, one of, in Cambridge and one in Lowell. The legislation abolishing the Middlesex County executive retained the Sheriff and Registers of Deeds as independently elected officials, transferred the Sheriff's Office under the state Department of Public Safety and the two Registry of Deeds offices to the Massachusetts Secretary of State's Office. Additionally, all county maintenance and security employees were absorbed into the corresponding staffs of the Massachusetts Trial Court.
The legislation transferred ownership of the two Superior Courthouses to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The hospital was closed; the office of County Commissioner was abolished and the office of County Treasurer was abolished as of December 31, 2002. Any county roads transferred to the Commonwealth as part
Brookline is a town in Norfolk County, Massachusetts, in the United States, is a part of Greater Boston. Brookline borders six of Boston's neighborhoods: Brighton, Fenway–Kenmore, Mission Hill, Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury; the city of Newton lies to the west of Brookline. At the 2010 census, the population of the town was 58,732, it is the most populous municipality in Massachusetts to have a town form of government. Brookline was first settled in 1638 as a hamlet in Boston, but was incorporated as a separate town in 1705. Brookline was the hometown of John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States. Once part of Algonquian territory, Brookline was first settled by European colonists in the early 17th century; the area was an outlying part of the colonial settlement of Boston and known as the hamlet of Muddy River. In 1705, it was incorporated as the independent town of Brookline; the northern and southern borders of the town were marked by two small rivers or brooks, hence the name. The northern border with Brighton was Smelt Brook.
The southern boundary, abutting Boston, was the Muddy River. The Town of Brighton was merged with Boston in 1874, the Boston-Brookline border was redrawn to connect the new Back Bay neighborhood with Allston-Brighton; this merger created a narrow strip of land along the Charles River belonging to Boston, cutting Brookline off from the shoreline. It put certain lands north of the Muddy River on the Boston side, including what are now Kenmore Square and Packard's Corner; the current northern border follows Commonwealth Avenue, on the northeast, St. Mary's Street; when Frederick Law Olmsted designed the Emerald Necklace of parks and parkways for Boston in the 1890s, the Muddy River was integrated into the Riverway and Olmsted Park, creating parkland accessible by both Boston and Brookline residents. Throughout its history, Brookline has resisted being annexed by Boston, in particular during the Boston–Brookline annexation debate of 1873; the neighboring towns of West Roxbury and Hyde Park connected Brookline to the rest of Norfolk County until they were annexed by Boston in 1874 and 1912 putting them in Suffolk County.
Brookline is now separated from the remainder of Norfolk County. Brookline has long been regarded as a verdant environment. In the 1841 edition of the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening, Andrew Jackson Downing described the area this way: The whole of this neighborhood of Brookline is a kind of landscape garden, there is nothing in America of the sort, so inexpressibly charming as the lanes which lead from one cottage, or villa, to another. No animals are allowed to run at large, the open gates, with tempting vistas and glimpses under the pendent boughs, give it quite an Arcadian air of rural freedom and enjoyment; these lanes are clothed with a profusion of trees and wild shrubbery almost to the carriage tracks, curve and wind about, in a manner quite bewildering to the stranger who attempts to thread them alone. Brookline residents were among the first in the country to propose extending the vote to women. Benjamin F. Butler, in his 1882 campaign for Governor, advocated the idea. Two branches of upper Boston Post Road, established in the 1670s, passed through Brookline.
Brookline Village was the original center of retail activity. In 1810, the Boston and Worcester Turnpike, now Massachusetts Route 9, was laid out, starting on Huntington Avenue in Boston and passing through the village center on its way west. Steam railroads came to Brookline in the middle of the 19th century; the Boston and Worcester Railroad was constructed in the early 1830s, passed through Brookline near the Charles River. The rail line is still in active use, now paralleled by the Massachusetts Turnpike; the Highland Branch of the Boston and Albany Railroad was built from Kenmore Square to Brookline Village in 1847, was extended into Newton in 1852. In the late 1950s, this would become the Green Line "D" Branch; the portion of Beacon Street west of Kenmore Square was laid out in 1850. Streetcar tracks were laid above ground on Beacon Street in 1888, from Coolidge Corner to Massachusetts Avenue in Boston, via Kenmore Square. In 1889, they were extended over the Brighton border at Cleveland Circle.
They would become the Green Line "C" Branch. Thanks to the Boston Elevated Railway system, this upgrade from horse-drawn carriage to electric trolleys occurred on many major streets all over the region, made transportation into downtown Boston faster and cheaper. Much of Brookline was developed into a streetcar suburb, with large brick apartment buildings sprouting up along the new streetcar lines. Brookline was known as the hamlet of Muddy River and was considered part of Boston until the Town of Brookline was independently incorporated in 1705, it is said. According to the United States Census Bureau, Brookline has a total area of 6.8 sq mi, all but 0.039 sq mi of, land. The northern part of Brookline north of the D-line tracks, is urban in character, as walkable and transit rich; the population density of this part of town is nearly 20,000 inhabitants per square mile, on a par with the densest neighborhoods in nearby Cambridge and Chelsea, Massachusetts
