According to Holly Springs website, the name Holly Springs comes from cool waters steadily trickling from springs that run past vibrant, age-old holly trees that have withstood storms and droughts, wars and depressions. Where 40-foot high holly trees towered over freshwater springs.
A small group of homes and small businesses formed around the original “holly springs” in an area that used to be an Indian hunting ground. The teeny community included a church, one of the first four to join the Raleigh Baptist Association in 1805. The church disbanded when “several members became unfaithful to the church,” according to church history. Several former members started another Baptist church several miles north at the intersection of two roads. One road went from Hillsborough to Smithfield and the other from Raleigh to Fayetteville. The crossroads eventually became what is currently downtown Holly Springs. Our Raleigh fence company has been serving the Holly Springs area for almost 10 years now.
