Friendly Living & a Comfortable Life-Style
Traveling East? Traveling West? Going North or South? Whatever direction you travel you can find roads that lead to our friendly Southeastern Colorado town of Holly. We're located along the historic east/west "coast-to-coast" U.S. Highway 50 route, four miles from the Colorado/Kansas state line. Colorado State Highway 89 is the north-to-south highway route to Holly.
Holly was incorporated in 1903 and was named for Hiram S. Holly, founder of a huge cattle ranch headquartered just south of the historical Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Depot (original buildings are still operational today, with the barn being listed on the National Register of Historic Places). Holly's population of approximately 1,020 serves as the trade center for much of eastern Prowers County and residents of western Kansas located near Holly.
Holly is a service minded community, where you can buy your groceries, food or fuel. You can mail a letter, attend church, visit school, relax in the park, go swimming, hike, play or watch a ball game. In our town you can enjoy the small, rural town life-style and, if you desire, build a successful enterprise in a community that will work to support all your efforts and be a good neighbor.
