The Richard Hodge Holland homeplace is located about 5 miles from Turkey, North Carolina, on Highway 24 between Turkey and Clinton.  It is about 80 acres and is currently owned by Richard T. Holland, Jr. and Jane Holland Hudson.  Richard Hodge Holland moved there with his father Perry Holland about 1920.  Perry Holland decided he didn't like living there and moved back to Johnson County after a year.  Richard Hodge Holland stayed on.  All the girls married and moved.  Aldine and Turner stayed and each built a home on a 1-acre lot on opposite road frontage corners of the original homeplace.
