Holliston has been awarded a $500,000 state grant that will allow the town to purchase approximately 86 acres of open space land currently owned by NSTAR.
Town Meeting voters last month approved spending $622,000 to acquire the parcel, which is located off of Adams Street.
Because the total cost of the land is $1,022,000, the amount of the state grand will leave the town with a $100,000 surplus to be spent on other projects, Town Administrator Paul LeBeau said.
