Holly Springs is a city in and county seat of Marshall County, Mississippi, United States near southern Tennessee.Near the Mississippi Delta, the area was developed as cotton plantations and dependent on enslaved labor. Since the 19th century the county has had a majority-black population. After the American Civil War, many freedmen continued to work in agriculture but as sharecroppers and tenant farmers. As the county seat, the city is a center of trade and court sessions.The population was 7,957 at the 2000 census. A slight decrease in population was calculated in the 2010 census. Opportunities are limited in the rural area and young people leave to find work.HistoryHolly Springs was founded by European Americans in 1836, on territory historically occupied by Chickasaw Indians for centuries before Indian Removal in the 1830s. They developed extensive cotton plantations, bringing or purchasing African-American slaves as laborers.The settlement served as a trading center for the neighboring cotton plantations. In 1837 it was made seat of the newly created Marshall County, named for John Marshall, the United States Supreme Court justice. The town developed a variety of merchants and businesses to support the plantations, and its population into the early 20th century included a community of Jewish merchants, whose ancestors were immigrants from eastern Europe.
