Brief | Holly School is the latest historic site listed

On May 17 the members of the Holly Community Club was presented with a plaque designating its building as site number 249 on the Kitsap County Historic Sites Register. The register, which identifies sites of historical or cultural significance in Kitsap County, is maintained by the Historical Society.

The two room Holly School, built in 1922, still retains its original design featuring a unique porch and bell tower. It is the most well-preserved of the three identical schools built by the Central Kitsap School District. The two other schools were located at Crosby and Seabeck. The Holly School served local children until 1946. In 1947 it became the home of the Holly Community Club and a center for community events.
