Holly Springs

Holly Springs, on U.S. Highway 59 eleven miles northeast of Nacogdoches in northeastern Nacogdoches County, was first settled before 1900. A school was in operation there by 1904, when it had an enrollment of forty-eight. In the mid-1930s Holly Springs had a school, several stores, and a number of houses. After World War II most of its residents moved away, but as late as the mid-1960s the area still had several stores and a church. In the early 1990s Holly Springs was a dispersed farming community.
