Dutch Settlement in the Midwest

Tues. July 25th, at 6 p.m..

Three major immigration waves have brought Dutch speaking people from the Netherlands to North America.  During the first third of the seventeenth century, the Dutch West Indies Company sponsored exploring and colonizing voyages to the New World.  The second wave, known as the “Great Migration”, began during the 1840’s, triggered by religious tensions in the homeland.  The final wave of Dutch immigration followed the end of World War II, encouraged by the government of the Netherlands in order to help relieve pressing economic problems in the homeland.

Join us for this talk about the two later waves that brought large numbers of Dutch settlers to the Midwest.

A Program of History on the Move, by the Sheboygan Historical Research Center.  Sponsored by the Friends of the Cedar Grove Public Library.
