Holly, Co., set on the grasslands near the Kansas border, was first established as a ranching center. Hiram Holly, for whom the town is named, arrived in 1871 with 1,300 cattle, and his ranch was the first settlement in the area. After he sold the ranch to a private company, it grew in size to nearly 2.5 million acres.
Today, the ranching and farming life still holds sway; much of this town is built around the farm. Crops grown in the area include wheat, corn and sweet-tasting cantaloupe. Farmers and friends gather downtown to share stories and shop. Visitors will find gift shops and a grocery store for stocking picnic baskets.
