As the name suggests, the town of Holly Springs in southern Wake County originated at a place where freshwater trickles from deep aquifers and where 40-foot-tall holly trees have endured storms and droughts, wars and depressions, and times of peace and prosperity. In Colonial times, a small cluster of homes and businesses formed around the original holly springs in an area that once was a Tuscarora Indian hunting ground. The tiny community included a sawmill, cotton gin, and store. In later years, a few miles to the north, Archibald Leslie purchased 180 acres at the intersection of two roads near another freshwater spring. He opened a tailoring business and store, and began construction on a 38-room manor. Today all that remains of the Leslie estate is the main house, listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Leslie-Alford-Mims House. A short dirt trail winds through the woods to the springs.

Article Title: She Digs Holly Springs History

Author: BETH HATCHER

Date: 8/13/08
Sometimes Barbara Koblich takes a lunch break under a tree beside the Holly Springs Masonic Lodge, seeking summer shade beneath its branches.

When she does her mind drifts to when the downtown building was a boys’ school.

That was before the Civil War, but about 140 years later Koblich will still shut her eyes and imagine she hears the laughter of the students playing outside.

As the unofficial town historian Koblich has made it her business to dig up Holly Springs history, and for her the stories still live in the present.

That’s why Koblich is busy working on another historical project — a collection of images for a pictorial history of the town that will be published in October by Arcadia Publishing.

“I think it’s going to be a wonderful keepsake for people,” she said.

Koblich said she has partly been inspired to collect the town’s history because the area is changing so rapidly.

In 1990 the town’s population was just under 1,000; by 2000 it was around 10,000. Recent estimates put the population at 22,000, Koblich said.

“I have this absolute love of genealogy,” Koblich said recently in a bubbling, youthful voice that belies her 51 years.

That’s how it all started — with the genealogy.

Koblich wanted to be a part of preserving the past as the town moved into the future.

Of course before that it started with a move to the western Wake town. Native New Yorker Koblich found herself in Holly Springs 16 years ago, when her husband’s job moved her family to the area.

Back then the town was truly tiny.

But things were happening in the town, as Research Triangle Park-inspired growth continued to sprawl south, covering the town in new subdivisions and new possibilities.

So even as she found work as the founding executive director of the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce, she found time to found the Holly Springs Historical Preservation Society.

The society mainly collects and catalogues stories on the town’s history and oldest family lines — information Koblich hopes to soon store in a section of the town’s official Web site.

It hasn’t been hard to find the stories because Koblich loves to talk, and she’s had jobs that allow her to talk to the town’s residents every day. Eventually she started working with the Town of Holly Springs, first as a clerk in the finance department and five years ago in the same role at Town Hall’s front desk. “I’m not just about dates and names,” Koblich said, noting that she really likes to learn the history of an area. It was mainly through talking to people on the job that she would find out the interesting stories about Holly Springs. Like the story of Isabella Rogers Leslie, a Civil War-era woman who stood on the porch of her house — which still stands in Holly Springs — and told Union officers that they could occupy her house, but only if they behaved like gentlemen. Collecting stories led to collecting items, and now a Town Hall case displays several historical artifacts residents have brought to Koblich — everything from the Bible of an emancipated slave to a Civil War bayonet.
