This local history museum is unique in its large number of artifacts from both early Dutch Settlers and artwork from the Netherlands dated from the 17th through the 20th century. The museum shares the history and art of Holland's founders who arrived in 1847 and faced difficulties such as a devastating fire that destroyed much of the community in 1871.
