by Bea Hait

There are many familiar rock formations in Holliston with Balancing Rock on Washington Street (above) likely being the one most folks know. Learn about this and other formations that give insight into how our land developed over the course of thousands of years.

This lecture is open and free to the public as part of the Historical Society’s educational mission. Light refreshments follow the presentation.
