The Hollis Village Historic District encompasses the historic village center of Hollis, New Hampshire. The district is centered on Monument Square, which connects Main Street (New Hampshire Route 122) to Depot Street and Broad Street. It coverts about 400 acres (160 ha), and extends along all three of those roads for some distance, and includes properties on Silver Lake Road and Ash Street. Most of the buildings in the district are residential or agricultural in use, and date before the turn of the 20th century; the oldest buildings date to the mid-18th century. The "Always Ready Engine House", which occupies a triangular parcel at the western end of Monument Square, was built in 1859, and is the town's oldest municipal building.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]
