History

The village of Holley was incorporated in 1850. Originally named Saltport, the name was changed to honor Myron Holley, a commissioner of the Erie Canal.

Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 1.3 square miles (3.3 km²), all of it land.

Holley is located on the Erie Canal.

The village is located at the junction of east-west highway New York State Route 31 (West Albion Street and State Street) and north-south highway New York State Route 237 (North and South Main Street).

Economy

Holley's main economy is farming based, due to the lack of trade in the area, as well as the growing townships nearby, such as Brockport, NY and Albion, NY. Besides small shops and businesses, including a bakery and a dance studio, as well as a diner and gas station, there is little of economic interest in Holley.

Education

There are two public schools in Holley: Holley Elementary School and Holley Junior/Senior High School. These two schools are located within close proximity to each other in the northeastern portion of the village.

Residents of the Holley School district currently pay the highest rate of school taxes in the county.[2] The older high school, located in the center of town, was closed in 1976 due to a growing population that needed a larger facility and one closer to athletic fields. This building is now considered a historical landmark, but it is now going to waste and is left unused because it is filled with asbestos.

As of the census of 2000, there were 1,802 people, 788 households, and 464 families residing in the village. The population density was 1,422.9 people per square mile (547.8/km²). There were 846 housing units at an average density of 668.0/sq mi (257.2/km²).
