Holly, Michigan


Holly, Michigan Holly is located on the western border of Oakland County. Its first settler was Nathan Herrick who came to the area in 1830. In 1843, a sawmill was built by Ira C. Alger, and the area was then referred to as Algerville, with Alger taking on the duty of station agent when the Detroit & Milwaukee Railroad came through. Around the same time, a Peter Fagan registered a post office under the name of Holly Mills, with reference to the abundant holly that grew in the area. The post office was renamed Holly in 1861, along with the help of another settler, Jonathan T. Allen, who moved there from Mount Holly, N. J. It eventually incorporated into a village in 1865.

This community has worked hard to retain its traditional, Victorian brick architecture in the downtown area, and it is worth a drive to see it. The narrow streets, old-style lamps, unique shops and the Historic Holly Hotel make for a delightful visit to yesteryear, whether winter or summer, rain or shine
