- Historical note:
- Holleman's Crossroads was originally called Enno Community, and is typical of the many thrifty farm communities formed in a prospering Wake County around 1840. Its soil was well-suited to cotton farming, which became the base of its economy. During the Civil War, the land served as a major Union camp. By the early twentieth century the community contained several stores, including S. B. Holleman's store and cotton gin, a post office, a public school with two teachers, and two active churches, including Bethel Christian Church. The cotton gin and a sawmill operated within the community, and a stone dam provided power. After the mid-twentieth century, when the community's population declined, most buildings in the area disappeared leaving only the Samuel Bartley Holleman House and Collins Grove Baptist Church. Electricity was not brought to Holleman's Crossroads until the 1945.
