I thought some of the readers of the Holland Blog might enjoying seeing what their tax bill in Holland might have looked like back in 1880, (a 131 years ago), since our present tax bills were recently mailed out to us.
The tax rate was actually higher than it is now, $17.00 per thousand as opposed to our present rate of $14.58.
This is the real estate tax bill for Elisha Washington Marcy's property, he was the son of David Marcy who built the Holland Inn at the corner of Brimfield and Stafford Road in 1812. Below is familiar picture of the Inn to many of our Holland residents.
