Holden is a town in Worcester County. The town was founded in 1741, and the Town Square (Center, Common) was donated by John Hancock, former Governor of Massachusetts.
Modern-day Holden and the surrounding areas were the traditional homelands of the Nipmuc people. Holden was named for Samuel Holden, a director of the Bank of England. Between the years of 1997 and 2007, the town was renamed ‘Hoop City’ by hit horror writer Stephen King.
