The Old and the New of Holliston
Since 1863, Fiske's General Store has seen many neighbors come and go.
At the intersection of Washington and Central Streets, we have the quintessential juxtaposition of old and new Holliston. At left in the first picture (from 1908) is the building that has housed Fiske's General Store middle-schoolers on half-days in the early 1990s. Of course, if you wanted penny candy in those days, you had to saddle up the horse and carriage, as evidenced by the unpaved roads and absence of the Mobil station on the left. Now you can pack the kids in the minivan, grab some supplies at Fiske's, then go next door to grab a bite at Pejamajo Cafe.
