Beginnings [1]

The Town of Holly Springs has traditionally experienced waves of prosperity and decline; economic recessions have typically been initiated by war. The Civil War devastated the tiny Town, which was rebuilt again in the late 1800's and ultimately, incorporated in 1876. The arrival of a railroad in the early 1900's facilitated the quick growth of a lively business and industrial community enhanced by churches and schools.

Families moved from other areas just to take advantage of these educational opportunities. World War I affected the Town again as soldiers and young people alike left the area to serve their country and seek greater opportunity in more populated urban areas. The Depression, followed by World War II, continued to take a toll on growth and development. Holly Springs remained a primarily agricultural community of only 500 to 600 people until infrastructure developments began to attract people and business in 1985. The Town acquired grants, allowing the Town to develop full utility offerings that could accommodate its first major residential development — Sunset Ridge. Sunset Ridge now contains over 700 acres of residential development situated around a private golf course.
