The Town of Holden was incorporated on January 9, 1741, on land that was home to the Nipmuc people. It’s named for Samuel Holden, director of the Bank of England.
Holden, MA played a notable role in the Revolutionary War, sending 75 men to fight at a time when the town’s population barely numbered 750. Twenty-five of these soldiers served directly under Gen. George Washington in the Continental Army. In 1789, Founding Father John Hancock donated an acre of land to Holden for the building of its town square.
Over the nearly 300 years of its existence, Holden has seen many changes. In the 18th century, it was primarily a farming community, but at the start of the 1800s, its economy shifted. Using waterpower from local streams, textile mills began popping up. With this industrial change, more European immigrants came to the town to work.
Around this same time, Holden became popular as a summer retreat for New Yorkers and Bostonians looking to escape the heat. Many resort hotels and rooming houses popped up to accommodate these visitors. Unfortunately, Holden’s mills and holiday hotels disappeared almost completely in the early 20th century with the creation of the Quabbin and Wachusett Reservoirs. The only remaining hotel structure from this era is located on the grounds of the Holden Hills Country Club.
Today, Holden is renowned for its excellent schools and library. According to recent FBI statistics, it is one of the safest communities in Massachusetts!
