BREMERTON — Holly, the small idyllic community located on the eastern shore of Hood Canal, will be the subject of a presentation at the Kitsap County Historical Museum, April 6 at 6:30 p.m. The program is free. The museum is located at 280 4th St. in Bremerton.
Holly is located at the end of Seabeck-Holly Road. It has views of Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains. With an average of 68 inches of rain a year, it is the greenest corner of the Kitsap Peninsula.
Holly received its name from the holly trees brought to the area by early settler Robert Wyatt in 1891. The community was once served by the Mosquito Fleet and has been the site of various enterprises, including fishing, shrimping, and logging.
