About Us

Holland Texas is located midway between Austin & Waco, ten miles east of Salado off interstate 35. It is a rich blackland farm community. About 1860 early settlers began community life along a stretch of Darr's Creek in southeast Bell County a mile east of present-day Holland. They called their settlement Mountain Home inasmuch as it adjoined Gotcher's Hill. The settlement grew and in 1877 added James R. Holland and  his steam cotton gin a mile west along Darr's Creek. Cotton was king. Construction of the tracks of the Katy (Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railroad) were begun. Moutain Home became Holland in 1879 with final incorportion as Holland in 1891.
