People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Hollis, Maine, USA? 

Hollis, York, Maine, USA
According to G.T. Ridlon, author of Saco Valley Settlements, "The original plantation of Little Falls included what is now Hollis, Dayton, and that part of Limington south of Little Ossipee river."

Early settlement was slow "in consequence of the uncertainty of titles, the boundaries of the original grants being a matter of dispute...In 1790 the population had increased to about 600 souls. The town was incorporated Jan. 27, 1798, by the name of Phillipsburgh..." The towns people soon determined the name Phillipsburgh was too awkward. "In 1811 the unwieldy name was exchanged for Hollis."
