Hello ! I’m a Dutch man from The Netherlands, and I’ve been living in Michigan for one year now, and I was asking myself, how’s the Dutch community in Holland, are there any Dutch speakers at all ? Kind regards,Randy

A: Randy, Holland is doing wonderful and if you haven’t had a chance yet, we invite you to come for a visit.  While it is true that we were settled by Dutch Immigrants, we have grown into a diverse city.  On occasion, you may hear, a whisper of the Dutch language being spoken, however the prominent language is English and the secondary language spoken is Spanish.  However, that doesn’t means that Hollanders have forgotten about the City’s past.  For example, we have recently refurbished our 250 year old working Dutch Windmill and proudly display it at our Windmill Island Gardens.
