Holbrook
Beginnings: The land was part of a royal patent obtained by William Nicoll, a wealthy New York City politician, in 1697, certifying his purchases from the Secatogue Indians. But there was almost no colonial settlement until 1848, when Alexander McCotter bought about 5,000 acres and offered small tracts for sale. The first church, Presbyterian, was built in 1863 and became St. John's Lutheran Church about the turn of the century. It is a town-designated historic structure.
