Holland Texas History: About 1860 early settlers began community life along a stretch of Darr's Creek in southeast Bell County a mile east of present-day Holland. They called their settlement Mountain Home inasmuch as it adjoined Gotcher's Hill. The settlement grew and in 1877 added James R. Holland and his steam cotton gin a mile west along Darr's Creek. Cotton was king. Construction of the tracks of the Katy (Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railroad) were begun. Mountain Home became Holland in 1879 with final incorporation as Holland in 1891.
