The inspiration to create this book came from an assortment of vintage family photographs and newspaper clippings discovered in a worn blue suitcase from our Grandmother’s past. The contents of the suitcase told the story of a group of Hollanders who came to the United States to settle in what is now known as Butler Township in Minnesota. This book commemorates the Dutch immigrant arrival in 1910 and their following settlement in Otter Tail County. As a scrapbook of sorts, it includes copies of newspaper clippings, photos from the past, and mixed media collages created with gratitude and respect for those who came before us.
