We are sorry to report that there has recently been some wanton sign vandalism on the Holt trail. This sign commemorates the homestead of Daniel and Alice Holt. Malicious activity like this is unusual and disturbing for our small town. A significant effort (and cost) goes into creating these attractive signs. Anyone with information which would help ini the investigation of this situation should contact the chair of the Trails Committee, Rick Church

The Holts settled here in 1786. Daniel was a cordwainer. Though Daniel, and his brother Thomas removed to New York in 1808, and this site was abandoned at that time, other members of the Holt Family remained in Nelson until the early 1900’s. Read more about the Holt Family at Nelson
