HOLLAND SPRINGS. The Holland Springs, on Hamilton Creek three miles south of Burnet in central Burnet County (at roughly 30°42' N, 98°13' W), are made up of several small springs rising from Lower Paleozoic Ellenburger limestones. The springs were the site of a ranger station in the late 1840s. Samuel E. Holland bought the land in 1848 and established the county's first permanent settlement there. The springs were named for him.
