Holly is more popular to history buffs for being the first railroad tracks of the Detroit and Milwaukee Line in 1863, where on the corner 'The Washington House' a small, two story wood building occupied the present day home of the Holly Hotel. Each day, countless trains would drop off passengers, railroaders, freight and transients to the village and the saloons that lined the streets. These brawls led to the naming of the street 'Battle Alley' which is still the name today.
