The museum was very interesting. It had a lot of photos, memorabilia, and information about the early settlers of the area who came from the Netherlands. It does not however tell you anything about windmills and how they were used. It is free (there is a donation box by the door…
Nederland is Dutch for Netherland. After oil was discovered at Spindletop, an offer of free land brought many Dutch settlers to SE Texas. This is their story. Also on site is an authentic Cajun one room house.
Best little town, best history and overall great place! Tex Ritter Park, Windmill history of the Dutch settlers into the area is in depth.
Interesting because of the way it's built. Worth stopping to take a look see. You can also buy souvenirs that are from Holland. I got some "wooden" shoe slippers. (made of soft material) Real wooden shoes are available.
Great Windmill Museum of some of the earliest settlers to tge area. Many fun and surprising facts. From Country & Western Historical figures to a High Jump Bar from when a local one gold, you can even don the attire and shoes that they wore. Cool gem, donations only accepted.
