Holt in Michigan, America has a total area of 4.3 square miles, making it a similar size to our own. The first permanent settlers in the township arrived in 1837 and the community has built up since then to include a thriving community with access to a post office, hotel and several other businesses.
It is also home to a twenty mile long ancient, glacial esker which is the longest in Michigan.
