Zeeland Township is a beautiful Township which shows pride in its historic background and its strong religious heritage. The Township, named after the Province of Zeeland in the Netherlands, was settled in 1847 by a group of 457 courageous settlers who were seeking religious and political freedom. Despite many hardships, the colony survived due to the strong faith and dedicated efforts of those who settled in this wilderness.
