Overview


Located in the far northwest hills of Oakland County, Holly is a vibrant community with a rich cultural heritage rooted in commerce and transportation. In 1864, it became the first Michigan community with a railroad junction, called the Holly and Flint line. The Holly, Wayne and Monroe Railroad was introduced in 1870 and later consolidated with the Holly and Flint line to become the Flint and Pere Marquette. As the railroad brought new growth to the village, Holly quickly developed into more than a mere whistle stop. By the 20th century, homes, schools, churches, and businesses took root and provided the foundation for a community that still thrives today.
