Promoters gave Nederland its Dutch name in 1897 to attract settlers from Holland to the area’s railroad jobs and rich farmland. As a tribute to this heritage, citizens of the city erected an exact replica of a Dutch windmill that now serves as a museum. Exhibits explore the cultural history of the area and pay tribute to native son, country and western music star Tex Ritter.
