“Hollis” was not developer Frederick W. Denton’s first choice for this neighborhood’s name. He wanted to call it Woodhull, after General Nathaniel Woodhull, who was captured and mortally wounded by the British in 1776, at what is now 197th Street and Jamaica Avenue. However Steuben County already had a Woodhull, so he named this area after his own birthplace in New Hampshire.
