Alltown Fresh, the newly opened market and gas station at 92 West Main Street, will host a commemoration ceremony this Friday at 1 p.m. to honor Hopkinton’s “historic founding families” who owned the property at Claflinville Four Corners, the area where Alltown Fresh is located.
The company is working with the Hopkinton Historical Society to plant two elm trees and place a stone plaque dedicated to the Claflin, Creedan, Doyle, Fairbanks, Holt, King, Kistner, Stone and Warren families. The two elm trees planted on each side of the historical stone will represent the past and future of Hopkinton and symbolize the strength and stability of the Hopkinton community, the company stated.
“We are excited by the new friendships we have made and to see that we are becoming part of our guests’ daily routines,” said Joshua Smith, Alltown Fresh chef and vice president. “We are all about community and appreciate the history of this location and the generous spirit of Hopkinton.”
The public is invited to the ceremony.
