The Holland House: A Golden Institution

Lu and Ethel Holland opened the venerable Holland House on Washington Avenue in 1946. The family rented out rooms, served breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and hosted countless business and community gatherings until closing the institution in 1982. Ultimately, the property was bought by local developers who would transform it into the southwest-styled Table Mountain Inn one sees today.

Holland family members still live in the area. Artie Holland volunteers with the museum helping inventory and catalog our growing photography collection.

Museum member, Beyer Patton, recently donated this menu from the early 1960s. I hear the steak dinner is to die for. The prices are right too.
