Discover the Dutch
Welcome to a walking tour of downtown Orange City. The tour begins at the Information Kiosk located at the southeast corner of Windmill Park. It was around this present town square that Henry Hospers, a leader of the 1870 Holland settlers, plotted the settlement of Orange City, named after Prince William of Orange, a prominent royal figure in The Netherlands (Holland) in the 17th Century.
This tour will be done in two parts:
- Tour of Windmill Park
- Tour of “Downtown” or Orange City’s Centrum
The six molens on the canal are scale models of historic Dutch molens and represent different time periods in the economic and cultural history of the Netherlands. They were a gift from Rod and Sara Shea of Middleton, Wisconsin.
