Holden was incorporated in 1741.
The Congregational Churches were used as the town meeting houses for over 100 years until this hall was built.

Turn around at the corner of Main (MA Route 122A) and Highland streets and see both historic and new sites. How did the places you see change over the past 100 years or so? Now, at the close the 20th century, this web overview presents a few current and past images as well as a brief history for a number of these sites.
