: Is it a pond or swamp or whatever where many frogs live? Or is it something else? What is it? And What's the story behind the phrase, if there's any? English is a foreign tongue to me. Please be kind. Thanks.

A "hollow" is a geographic term describing terrain that is depressed like a valley.

The NE part of the US of A has many towns and localities named with "hollow", the most famous being from a book and town entitled "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow".

Any town named "Frog Hollow" may have or has had at one time an overabundance of frogs.

As you can see from clicking on the link I have provided below there are numerous towns and businesses named after "Frog Hollow".
