History & History Related Items

Holden history:

In 1855, Fort Cedar Springs was built by Mormon pioneers. The church wanted a settlement built here and soon a number of other families came to live. They built an adobe fort as a home for the settlers and a protection from the Paiute. Many travelers also stopped here to rest. Because the area had dairy cows, milk was often served to the travelers who began to call the fort, Buttermilk Fort. In 1858, the name was changed to Holden when a post office was opened here. The name was in honor of Elijah Holden who froze to death the previous year. He was caught in a snowstorm and had to leave his wagon and horses. He tried walking but quickly became exhausted and cold, especially since he was carrying his young son. Finally, he wrapped the boy in his shirt and left him by the road. Later both were found frozen to death a few miles apart.
The incorporation date of Holden: 1923
