Contractors renovating the old Hollis Town Hall met with a surprise recently—a huge beehive inside one of the walls. Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Mark Le Doux says the bees were long gone. But they got a pretty clear tip-off before they even saw the hive.
“We were told that there is honey that’s seeping out of the wall. And rather incredulously, we went up and took a look, and sure enough, there were pools of honey on the floor up against the wall,” Le Doux says.
