Hollenberg, a village of Franklin township, Washington county, is located on the Little Blue river 12 miles northeast of Washington, the county seat, and is a station on the St. Joseph & Grand Island R. R. The town was laid out in the spring of 1872 by G. H. Hollenberg, who built the first store. The postoffice was established the same year with R. T. Kerr as postmaster. In 1896 Hollenberg came into notice through the report that gold had been found in the immediate vicinity, but the report was without foundation. (See Gold.) The town has a bank, a money order postoffice with two rural routes, telegraph and express offices, grain elevators, a flour mill, graded public schools, churches of various denominations, a number of mercantile houses, and in 1910 reported a population of 250.
