The development of the Holliday Park Historic District dates back to the earliest days of the City of Topeka. Though officially developed beginning in 1885, the plat for the area maintains the historic layout established by the Original Town plat which began the City in 1856. Portions of Holliday Park were originally owned by Cyrus K. Holliday, founder of Topeka and of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad.
Holliday Park was constructed as a late 19th Century urban neighborhood within a short walking distance to the City's primary commercial center. It offered a wide variety of housing styles for residents of a variety of professions.
Housing styles include Queen Anne Victorian, Folk Victorian, Colonial Revival, and Italianate.
