Holland (Holland Settlement) is a half mile west of U.S. Highway 69/287 and a mile south of Village Mills in north central Hardin County forty-one miles north of Beaumont. The community was established by Charles Sherwood Holland in the late 1840s. Early settlers raised stock and ran small farms, but logging became more important in the area after the railroads came into northern Hardin County in the 1880s. A few scattered dwellings remained at the site of Holland in the 1980s.
