Significance: The Bogastow Brook Viaduct is a 260 foot long, 8 arch stone viaduct. It carries the tracks of the Boston & Worcester Railroad across Bogastow Brook, and also spanned the tailrace of the Holliston Woolen Mills until the Mills were demolished. The Viaduct, which is 14 feet wide, carries a single track which appears to be still in use. It has a modern concrete coping.
