The Hollandale Downtown Historic District is locally significant under Criteria A for association with Commerce and Community Development and Planning. The period of significance is from 1902 to 1945. Hollandale's small but urban-scaled downtown is significant as a highly intact and still functioning agricultural market town in the South Delta. Smaller whistle-stop communities typically did not have enough commercial density to build a downtown core, while larger cities such as Greenville had downtowns of many blocks with commercial activity separated from the industrial activities directly on the railroad. Hollandale's downtown, however, lies adjacent to the railroad and with a variety of commercial and industrial uses in its single-block length.
