Village [1] in southwestern Northampton Township on the road from Newtown to Feasterville. It was first known as Finneys Mill from the Finney family who owned a grist mill there. It was next called Rocksville, so named because of the rocky creek banks nearby. The station on the Trenton Cut-off Railroad near the village is named Roxton, and the village itself is marked Rocksville on the State Highway Department's Map of Bucks County, 1940. Holland has been a post office since July 11, 1870, and the name of the village was then changed from Rocksville to that of the pioneer Dutch settlers' fatherland. At this time the village had twenty dwelling houses, two flouring mills and several shops. Holland is also the name of a railroad station in the same township on the Philadelphia, Newtown and New York Railroad between St. Leonard and Churchville stations.
