The windmill museum is a piece of Nederland history that is a must-see for all residents. Small but in a great location.

This was a Dutch settlement during the Spindletop Oil discovery. The Dutch heard land was being given away here so they settled here and raised their family and started business.

On the outside this place looks small, but they sure cram a lot of good stuff and make it comfortable to walk. It has a nice history of town and what the Dutch did to build it. The Dutch heritage still continues today in Nederland.

This was fun to see and take a tour of. The man who ran the museum was very knowledgable and since we were the only ones there we got to ask all the questions. Lots of older memorabilia and city folklore to learn.
