Date listed: 7/7/2014 Criterion A: Politics / Government, Social History, Entertainment/Recreation Criterion C: Architecture Local significance. The Holden Town Hall is an architecturally notable one-and-one-half story wood frame structure located on Main Road in the Penobscot County town of Holden. Erected by the town in 1873 to the designs of an as of yet unknown architect, and later used by the local chapter of the Patrons of Husbandry, the handsome building with Gothic Revival, Italianate and Stick Style details served as the site of the municipality’s governmental functions until the mid-1960s, and as the meeting hall for the local Grange until 1995. In addition, over the years this building was used for receptions and funerals, dinners and socials, plays and presentations, and hosted an annual fall fair. The Holden Town was entered into the National Register of Historic Places at the local level of significance for its long term significance with the social, recreational, and governmental history of the town, and also for its local architectural importance.
