Holliston Market Report - From 11/3/07 to 12/3/07Holliston is the picture of New England.  As you drive through town you see many historical homes.  In the center of town is the Fiske Store which a a wonderful place for crafts, kids toys and collectibles, penny candy.  Just across the street is the a great market which has been there for years.  My favorite spot in Holliston is Lake Winthrop.  It is this serene lake,  It takes me back to going to New Hampshire in the summer with family and friends.  Among the wonderful things about Holliston is the school system.  Absolutely great school system.  In future blogs I will share some neat things about this quintessential little town. Holliston is bordered by Millis, Sherborn, Medway, Ashland, Hopkinton, and Milford. Pat Baker, Realtor, Need...
