Holland was a junction point for several Pere Marquette lines as well as an interurban line running from Grand Rapids to Saugatuck/Douglas. The former Pere Marquette main line had a station here which has been beautifully restored. The PM also had branches from here (Waverly) north to Muskegon and southeast to Allegan.
