We have enjoyed guests from all over the world – 50 states, 21 countries and 3 territories! Of course they always want to know where we are from and how we got here. This is where I grew up – Holden, Massachusetts. It was a small town just north of Worcester, in the center of the state. It is now a bustling community of approx 20,000 residents! Quite a change from its’ incorporation in 1741. When I lived there it was a quiet and wonderful place to grow up. In doing Thurston Family research I learned that a Thurston cousin is buried in the antique cemetery that is located right in the town square area that is depicted in these prints…..small world!
