History of the Holly Spring School From 1850 till 1880 the schoolhouse was located near the present Walter Scott residence. Then the school was moved to the place it is now 1ocated.and a new schoolhouse was built. ln 1917 this building was moved to the north corner of the school grounds and construction was started on the present school building. In 1941 a large gymnasium was added. This was a delight to everyone and many hours have been spent in good recreation and entertainment. The old school is still in good condition considering how many students pass in and out of its doors daily. Transportation The first means of transportation to the Holly Springs Consolidated school was four horse drawn, wooden wheeled busses. Later wooden busses with balloon tires and a roof were brought out. These busses were helped out by three of four cars with school bus signs onthem. These wooden busses were used until about 1939. The four wooden busses were model "T's". Still later these busses were replaced by 1939 "VS" steel busses, they have heaters, all have tire chains, cushioned seats and many other improvements. Fire extinguishers, signal flares emergency door and stop sign that, can be turned from the inside of the busses. We hope these busses will last a while yet. S

The History of Holly Springs The history of Holly Springs is a very quaint one but yet quite common compared to that of other communitites. Many changes have been made since the original location of the town. The first signs of a community were further west than that of the present settlement. First was a store built in 1885 by a man named Bushey-a small distance east of the present john Gallagher residence. Later it was moved further west to the corner near Lewis Sulsberger. Next an Indian agent named Price, who was formerly from Holly Springs, Mississippi, bought the store. From here the town got the name of Willow Springs later it was changed to Holly Springs. A few years later George Laper bought the store from Price, and after hav- ing possession for awhile, it was bought by Batman, and again it was bought from Batman by Wengert who moved the store to the present site of Holly Springs, on the north side of the highway. In later years the store was sold to the Rose Bros. who built a new brick building and then in 1946 sold it to Bruce Haddock when they moved from the community. The settlement grew larger and finally a school was built, and in about 1914 it was decided that all of the small country schools should be consolidated in to one larger one in town. These four of five school houses were moved to the school grounds and were used while the new school building was being built. Many additions were made as the year went by including a new gymnasiiun and auditorium. This was a government project, and was completed in 1941, This has added a great deal to the town and has served for many hours of entertainment and recreation. Up to the year of approximately 1926 all of the roads were unproved or graveled. A new concrete highway was constructed which helps to make up the state highway known as the "Denison," There are now two churches in Holly Springs and they are: Christian Church which was erected in 1894, and is located in the south part of town. The Open Bible Church was built in 1945, and is located on the site of an old black- smith shop many years ago. The telephone system was introduced approximately 45 years ago-and it was located in one of the farm homes, this was later moved to town, and has been operated here since. Holly Springs, now has many new buildings and business houses. A new building across the highway--a repair shop was built in 1945. A new business house has been erected in 1947, which is an implement, and electrical appliance shop. And also a new locker plant has been introduced and proved to be very successful. All these and other places make up the business part of town. At present the population is approximately fifty-one. Many of the members of the town have left, but others have filled their places. Other things have been added. A large bus line runs through Holly Springs six times a day. This proves to be helpful to everyone. Holly Springs is not large in size but everyone is proud of it and the history behind it and what it means. O S
