Historic New Groningen Schoolhouse

The New Groningen Schoolhouse dates back to 1881 when it served as a rural school for children in the Zeeland/Holland area. In 1951 the local school district sold the Schoolhouse, and it remained a residential duplex until 2005. At that time, it was purchased by the Zeeland Historical Society for restoration. 


The Grand Reopening of the New Groningen Schoolhouse was held on December 15, 2011.
