History of Holly Hill

Holly Hill was originally settled in the mid-1870s and incorporated on July 1, 1901. The city was named by its founder, William Samuel Fleming Sr., because of its similarity to his Irish Holywood (pronounced Hollywood) home close to Belfast, Ireland. He owned 4,000 acres between Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach along the Halifax River. Another settler, William Wallace Ross, arrived here sometime in the 1860s and established a home site at a point which he called “Palmetto Point”. There, he built a cabin overlooking the Intracoastal river, as well as establishing the first Holly Hill area post office. Orange groves and sugar plantations began to spring up, and the local economy flourished through the turn of the century. Soon, many travelers made the decision to settle in Holly Hill, mostly for its pleasant climate and beautiful views on the banks of the river. The name Palmetto Point was changed to the “Ross Point” in 1958 and is a desired stop for many visitors for its pristine views of the water and coastline.

Through the early 20th century, a variety of businesses sprang up including manufacturing, farmers markets, industrial supply warehouses, and repair shops, to name a few. People often travelled long distances to Holly Hill for their needs and supplies, as they knew that would be the best to obtain them. One desired item was whiskey, usually rum, run by the famous William Frederick McCoy (“The Real McCoy”) who smuggled whiskey into the U.S., traveling from Nassau up the east coast on a vessel named “Tomoka” (named after the river that runs through his hometown, Holly Hill).

They employ one of the best property managers in Volusia County. They give me a statement of e-funds transfer to my bank account at the end of the month. If I need further info I contact my property manager (Roger Bronk) and he immediately contacts them and the information is emailed me as an attachment. Makes my life much easier.
