Founded in 1746 as a farming town, Hollis still clings to its rural past. Once known for its corn, strawberries, orchards, and dairy and poultry farms, this affluent bedroom community is now home to a number of business executives and their families. Despite the changes, Hollis has managed to hold on to its small-town character.
The center of town is a designated Historic District and includes more than 100 historic homes and buildings. Outside of the town center, sprawling orchards, rolling fields, and stately farms sit alongside large, contemporary homes. More than 2,000 acres of Hollis land remains in active agricultural use today.?
